Talking I'M BACK....Doctor cleared me and Sunday I ride again!

6-28-03...... I get to ride MX Sunday. The ankle is about 90%. This will be my first real ride with the 450F cam. I will report on how it does!

Brent




Well I will be watching from the sidelines for the next 6 weeks. I broke my left ankle Tuesday night at our local night track. I had sprained it in a crash the Tuesday before and did not go to the doctor. This Tuesday I over jumped a double and landed really hard..."SNAP" goes the left ankle!! The ER doctor said it was most likely fractured from the week before and I did not know it.

Anyway, does anyone have MX boot advice? LOL

Satch,
man o man do I know how you feel. I did almost the exact same thing on April12 . I have 3 more weeks in this boot and I just came off of 3 weeks of crutches. I broke my lower tibia right where the ankle joint is. Broke the bone vertically up the bone. Fortunately it didn't break all the way off other wise surgery and metal in the body. Anywho....boot advice...interesting topic. I had tech8's on when my injury happened. However I am not sure if any boot could have prevented my fat a$$(235lb) from causing the injury. I short sided a triple and bent my toes up to the shin I hit so hard. I have been looking at the oxtar boots and they look to have really good mallelous(sp) protection. This basically prevents the foot from bending up like mine did. Are they any better than sidi or astar? Hard to say, but maybe worth a try. You can check em out on www.oxtar.com I think. They are the same price range as tech8's so they are still really pricey. Now that I have rambled on...Hope you have a speedy recovery and are riding soon.:

Sorry to hear about your grounding! There is a company that makes roadracing boots called "Frey". They actually have a hinged carbon fiber ankle joint and guard. Never checked to see if they make anything for Mx though. Good Luck and wishing you a fast recovery. Now comes the hot weather riding anyway. Spring was so nice!

Unhappy Hope you recover quickly

Satch,
I am sorry to hear about your ankle. I am praying for your recovery to be quick and complete so you can get back out thete to do what we all love best.

As to the boots, I spent the extra money to buy Alpinestar Tech * boots. I have had some scarry crashes lately and my ankles came out unscathed. the Sidi Force boots are supposedly really good also.

I hope you get better soon.

As for boots, I don't think I'm going to buy Tech 8's again either. I like bates, like the oxtar's and will probably make them my next purchase.

Speaking from experience. It sucks watching from the side lines, but that's the only way it's going to heal. Be thankful that you had all that riding before and that you'll be back in the saddle soon.

I think u shouldn't go for the 6h packs just yet...of course u should continue riding but wait until ur ankle has heeled 100% or u'll be screwed nxt time u crash on it......one of mine and my brothers friends has broken 3 bones riding and had a few medal instruments inside him and has only been riding for about a yr. and a 1/2 just by coming in the turn to hard, riding above his abilities, and trying to clear Kong (the biggest jump at the track).
I live in Kauai so we mostly ride trails alot....
Congrats on getting to ride dat 450F sounds killa.......Peace out
