Hey everyone,

Well today was not a good day on Mt Glorious. Two accidents before we arrived, and on the way back down the Mt Glorious Rd Petrol took a spill... :(

He's in hospital at the moment about to go in and have his elbow operated on. Elbow is the only damage. Pretty well smashed up.

I won't go into detail on the accident itself - I'll leave that to Petrol. But Jaydee and myself were right behind him when it happened. Scary stuff seeing a good mate sliding into a guard rail... Mind you if the rail wasn't there, who knows what might have happened.

Anyways, good luck Petrol. Hope you're out of there quick smart.

Cheers to a quick recovery :beer

best luck with the operation and I am sure it will go well ( i been there enough times as it is, so know the feeling).. just take it easy and hope ya have some nice nurses :)

Good on ya guys. I'm sure Mr & Mrs Spice appreciate the best wishes... :thumbup

Latest news is that he had the initial op. Needs to go back in again though. Went to see him again today, couldn't talk though - he was way too drugged up.

Ride safe guys :)
