Its been a really long time since I have last written a diary(almost a year). I am really sorry about that but to be honest I really donít like computers so I donít spend a lot of time on them.
I had quite a good season this year. I ended up 5th in the world championship and 3rd in the British championship. I was very upset to not win the British championship because I won the most races(4 out of 8) but I just was not consistent enough. Oh well.
I almost managed to make it through the whole season without an injury but my wrist has never been good after I broke my scaephoid and had it pinned last year. I have ridden with a brace on my wrist ever since and in the Irish gp I cased a jump and hurt my wrist really badly. I went to the doctor and they saw that my wrist had never healed properly and I would need a bone graph the week after the des nations.
I finished off the season well and headed off to America for the Des Nations. Our weekend started off well when South Africa qualified 2nd on Saturday. We had high hopes but it all went pair shaped on Sunday and we all had bad luck and I managed to have a crash in the 2nd heat and break my left foot really badly. I flew back to Belgium in a lot of pain and had my wrist and foot operated on at the same time the following Thursday.
The operation was successful on both my wrist and foot and its been 4 weeks since and I am back home recovering well. I will go to my doctor here tomorrow for a check up and to pull out a pin that is sticking out of the skin. .it sounds really painful so I hope it goes well and I can handle it.
I will get back into the gym next week. I tried to start this week but after the 1st day I back my foot swelled up and I had some pain so the doc said I must wait another week.
The joys of being a pro moto x rider..ha ha
Well till next time
Give it horns seen as I canít for a while
