Was just a little curious if we had any updates on the 2 riders that went down while riding at the national. Their status and injuries and causation of their crash, so we all might learn from them.

Not yeti. One’s in the hospital in Rome. Wife’s on the way. Hospital is honoring the health privacy laws I’m sure.

I can report that John Sperger is still on the mend after having a serious crash with a postal carrier. His family reports that his healing is going to be slow but all signs point to a full recovery. He will be in the care of my local hospital for several more weeks, it appears. I will be checking in while he is housed thusly. Those wanting to send notes of encouragement can do so here and I'll let John know to look.

Tom has struck out at getting info so far because of privacy rules. I wish his family would update.😣

I saw Ed Dyer at the Ice cream social at the National. He was beat up and sore, but otherwise seemed ok. I did not learn what caused the crash.

( Ed and a couple of other MA guys took me under their wings/ let me ride with them at the 2019 national ). Had a great time
We even made the Concourier cover. 😁

My nephew and I took Ed to Huntsville so he could pick up his $600 per day rental car. Ed didn't really know why he crashed. His best guess was being tired.....and maybe getting too old to distance ride.

Bud,
Thanks for taking care of Ed. He’s good man.
I got the same impression on accident causation.

This trip was all about spending some time with Greg. We weren't too concerned with what we were doing, so Greg offered Ed the ride and I agreed. It was good to be in a position to help him out. My nephew Greg is a great guy!
