Get Well Alan Foster!!!!

Alan Foster gives a big thumbs up from his hospital bed after Saturday's bad luck.
Get back soon Alan...

I went down to ride Sheep Hills with a bunch of SHL's from yesterday and today. Unfortunately during Alan Foster's first run into French Connection ( which is so fuckin' steep and tall if you tag... keep reading.), Alan got a bit leaned and stiff and if that wasn't bad enough... he clipped both wheels of his 20" on the top of the first landing sending his to his head at bottom of an easily 8'. 

Alan hit the ground hard enough to literally shake it. He gave himself a pretty good shiner, bloody nose, busted lips and hurt some ribs pretty bad from what we knew because was having a hard time breathing. He was taken away by the paramedics to be safe and that turned out to be a good thing. Alan suffered a broken back that will require surgery tomorrow, so wish him well.

Alan, Sorry to see you all jacked up.. I hope you can get better really fast. I hope you are still smiling like in the picture when all of your medications wear off. That is the sign of a true warrior. I usually cry like a baby when the meds wear off. I think that you are Brians brother, but you could be the FMXrider for all I know because you are all jacked up in that pix. I have always been a big fan of the Foster brothers! I have Brian's autogragh on a number plate in the basement, that I got when he was in Denver once upon a time. I have about 15 jumps in my backyard and you are welcome to come ride when you are better then I could get your autograph. But, sorry to hear about the bad crash and hope you are 100% and shock the doctors with your speedy recovery. Dave
