Default Big Maico (Howard Lobel) down yesterday at Rio Bravo

     

I just got off the phone with Howard Lobel. He crashed at Rio yesterday and is currently in Houston NW Medical Center with L2 and L4 fractures, a broken transverse process and some disc damage. He has full movement of all limbs so they don't think there is any permanent damage. He is currently waiting on a neurologist consult and will probably be in a brace for a couple of months. He's in good spirits (like always) but in some pain. If you want to give him a call, it's 281 - 716 - 1621.

I don't know Howard but wish him all the best, hope he keeps riding.
From what I've seen of that track from various vids it appears to be a great vintage type track.
Do you know how it happened?

Great to hear from you again Dave, but I'm sure sorry to hear that Howard is hurt! I'll give him a jingle later today to see how he is.

I agree Chase.
Every time I talk with “H” he’s in a good mood. Even with a broken back he’s still a crack-up (pun intended).
Donna is in need of prayer too. She’s laid up with another food surgery plus taking care of “H”.
Prayers for the LaBell household.

Sorry to hear about Donna! H said he talked to you when I called him Boyd, made me realize how long it has been since I have bugged you!

Oh man... I'm going to call him in the morning. I hope he is okay.

Thanks for all of your updates.
