He is not a young man, and broken ribs are a tough thing, only time heals them, very painful and very hard to get comfortable to sleep, I wish him a speedy recovery, hope he is OK.

If you are able please tell him all his fellow Quebec riders are wishing him a speedy recovery. I will send him an email as well.

You said it.  Wish I could say I don't know what you mean and can't relate, but after going over the bars & busting 5 going up Grand Mere on last year's day-one opener, and initially in disbelief that it was a six-week time-out, "sleeping" (not really) sitting up, praying not to sneeze/etc, it's real, and that was for a (young) 57 yr old.

Oh wow, hope he is ok. I do know he wears a protective vest while riding.

Thank goodness Bill's a good planner/dresser & good healer.  That time he went over the bars from that icy patch a couple of years ago (Pickle Park?) was "just" a temporary setback.  Let's hope & pray for a repeat performance.

Get well soon Bill

 Can anyone confirm please. Was he wearing the tek-vest or not?  Very curious on this. 

 

Yes, I texted him today, he was wearing the Tek vest.
