Gav out of action

Hey all. Just a quick note from Mal here, one of Gav’s mates here in the UK. Wanted to let you know that Gav took a pretty bad tumble earlier this week, but off his bike rather than his board. I’ll hand over to the man himself for the gory details; reads a bit like a police incident report, this:

On Monday night, I had a collision with a car while out training on my bike. It happened around 9:30pm, but I don’t remember anything of the impact or what happened between then and the following morning.

It was a pretty nasty crash:

  • cracked skull
  • smashed ear
  • broken femur (multiple breaks)
  • Surgery on the leg

Following the surgery, I’ve been on a couple of drips, morphine, oxygen, antibiotics, and have had a blood transfusion.

Of course, I’m keen to get better and get back to writing on here, to talk more about snowboarding and how this injury might affect the current trick list! :) Hopefully, it won’t be too long before I’m back, but in the meantime, things might be a little quieter on here for a bit.

For my part, feel free to get in touch via the comments on here; I’ll make sure Gav hears them all.

Cheers,

Mal & Gav.

    Cheers, everyone. Ciara will be taking the messages up to him, seeing as (last I heard), he’s still not got his phone or laptop with him in hospital.
