Another bummer post.   JoeS crashed hard descending Pajarito on Thursday.  Solo crash, no cars, no other riders involved.  He was taken by ambulance to Los Alamos hospital then airlifted to UNM trauma in Abq.   Many thanks to his riding companions Guy, Rich, Gordon for doing all the right things.

The following from his wife:  As of Friday morning, they’re doing an epidural for better pain management. He has a punctured lung, 12 broken ribs, and lacerations. By some miracle, his brain and neck scans show no trauma. Drs said his helmet literally saved his life.
He’s still in trauma ward, visitors are limited. When he’s moved upstairs he’ll be able to have more visitors. Thanks to all the SOB’s for their concern. It meant a lot to him.
Oh- he’s also delusional, he said it will be 3 weeks, maybe 4, before he rides again.
We’ll post when visiting is allowed.

To everyone:  Please ride carefully.
