New York Pro Charles Ellis Injured in Practice Crash

Long Island pro Charles Ellis, who is recently coming back after a year off the bike and raced the Unadilla and Budds Creek nationals (qualifying for both rounds), was seriously injured in a practice crash this week on Long Island getting ready for Southwick this weekend. His injuries are extensive resulting in a shattered pelvis, dislocated one hip and broken the other, broken a few ribs, and broke L1, L2, and L3 vertabrae in his back. Charles is in good spirits but pretty bummed about the entire situation. He was planned to have surgery this morning on his pelvis or hip. Also, just to let you know, Charles has health insurance.
