Cause landing on ones feet at 80mph from 12-15ft in the air hurts.

It's going to be tough for him to recover in time. Depends on how bad the fractures are (? hairline). Even if he does get back on the bike in time for Miller, I wonder how good he'll actually be moving around on the bike during the race. I guess we'll see.

I've raced MX with three broken ribs, a broken collarbone, and lacerated left foot.

Once you're on a bike, and the adrenaline starts pumping at the start line, the pain just melts away.

It's only a couple hours after the race you're a basket case.

He'll be OK.
A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.
