update on Tom(El Zorrillo)

Just when you thought sweeping was safe...




Tom (El Zorrillo) went down hard Friday riding sweep on our way to the Salt Trams...
just outside of Darwin we waited on the trail ...no Tom, not a good sign, especially since he's one the faster rider's @, ...so Pat(pjh66) went looking, and then me, ... found him 3-4 miles back on the trail in bad shape, a dazed dirt bag, his goggles and visor smashed , seat laying in the trail and Tom in pain, barely standing on one leg, holding his bike, wanting me to help him put his seat on, turn the bike around, help him on it so he can ride out ...uhhh that wasn't happening...
Jon(Riddler990) hauled ass and got his truck...while Lior, Peter(the Grinch).. Jimmy"MC"(1224R) and Pat .. counseled, comforted and shaded,?? ..the down rider.

Once at PSR we packed Tom up and in Pat's truck... Pat drove him to the hospital near San Clemente

Tom's been in and out of surgery, with more to come next week..

minus the complications and other details...

- broken Tibia just below the knee ,
-3 broken toes, 4 broken/ dislocated metatarsals in foot ,
-possible torn ligaments around the knee



We wish Tom a speedy recovery, simply because... 1) he's the last person that deserved this... 2) he's a lot of fun to ride with

Heal up Tom. I had only just heard about that injury in this thread, I don't know how I managed not to hear about it on Friday or Saturday!
