Little update for you guys. Lastnight in Minneapolis I was involved with some carnage in the rhythm section right off the start and I ended up getting landed on in the 1st main event of the night. I ended up with a fractured tibia as of now. Have an appointment Monday with an ortho to see the final word. Extremely bummed to say the least... but I do know it's hard to beat someone who won't give up. I'll be back soon #GodsPlan Thank you to all my sponsors and people in my corner for the uplifting. @yamahamotorusa @monsterenergy @thormxofficial @bell_powersports @ride100percent @alpinestars @toyotaescondido @swanie387 @seth_rarick @teamdrg @jakevanada @trentwebb175 #hutch
