Our own David Pingree suffered multiple injuries this past weekend at the Redmond, Oregon, round of the 2007 AMA Supermoto Championship. After winning the past four rounds, Ping was leading the points in the AMA Supermoto Lites class and looked capable of winning again after claiming the pole for Saturday's race. On the opening lap he crashed entering the whoops, and suffered several broken bones.
"I crashed in an over-watered section of the track on the first lap of the main this weekend while leading," he said. "I broke both bones in left forearm, navicular in left wrist and fractured my right wrist. Seeing my Doc today at 11 about surgery. Ill let you know more when I know."
Get well soon, Ping.
