Scottsdale, AZ - The Road 2 Recovery teamed up with Dr. Steve Augustine and the Action Sports Medicine Foundation (ASMF) at Loretta Lynn's this month where the Amateur Medical Mobile Unit was debuted. The medical unit provided on-site sports medicine services from taping and stretching to evaluation and medical treatment of injuries not requiring emergency room transport, similar to what the pros have at the races already. Utilizing 2 physicians, 1 physicians assistant, and 3 certified athletic trainers, the unit brought a new level and understanding of the importance of safety and health issues by providing information to the athletes on things like Safety Equipment, Dehydration and Concussions, just to name a few. The medical unit treated approximately 250 riders throughout the week long event. With riders having access to onsite care for injuries such as setting broken wrists, the number of riders transported to the hospital was significantly reduced.
Each rider will be given a participants goodie bag and will be entered into a drawing for 2 Tickets with all day Pit Passes to a 2008 regional SX closest to their home. In addition each track will have prizes awarded with the top rider nationwide winning his/her choice of a MX bike. We will be giving away 5 MX bikes, one each Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Suzuki, Yamaha. First place gets their choice of the 5 bikes; second place gets their choice of the 4 remaining bikes, and so on.
Remember the sooner you sign up the more pledges you can get. We're only a month away so don't miss the chance to win a bike while helping to support the Amateur Medical Mobile Unit. We can't do it without your help.
