just watched the top ten on freecaster. Sam Hill took his first win of the year and Peaty pulled in 2.5 seconds behind for 2nd. The surprise of the day was Aaron Gwinn from So Cal held the hotseat from nearly all the top ten qualifiers, resulting in a solid 3rd only .3 sec off Peat. First american on the top 3 in... well before my time haha anyways it was unreal watching Blinky, Brendan, Fab and Kovarik among others try to best Aaron, and it took so many..
Theres a race at willamette Pass this weekend, and it seems like everyone is there but me. I opted for the couch thru the weekend to recover and get some editing done. Willamette will be really gnarly, with dust everywhere and braking bumps that would swallow you alive.. you can expect some injuries and people who have no sense of self preservation to do really well, im excited to see how Rhys does

Great sucess!!Just feels like I've got a block of metal in my hand haha a little loopy, just scarfed down a sandwich and some sherbert.. Hollis is comin down in a half hour to get me but should be home within the hour. Thank you everyone for the support, couldn't have done it without you folks! -Tom
Well it's 5.30 and I'm still in pre-op, waiting to get Into surgery. The doctors surgery scheduled before me got started late and pushed me back a couple hours.. I'm tired, haven't had a single thing to eat or for pain all day so I'm pretty damn irritible haha. Should be brought back any minute now...
Just bout to head out to Riverbend for the procedure, and hand hurts bad and feels like a huge jumbled mess contained in a splint right now. Started moving my fingers yesterday but they have absolutely no strength and feels like someones stepping on my wrist when I move em. yesterday I only had to take some Profin in the am and a couple vicodin to help me snooze all night, but today they're all worn off and im pretty sure I fractured a rib in the tumble.
Took this yesterday of a nice raspberry on my side, il get another later today once the bruise sets in more :)
anywho, thanks for everyones concern and words of support! I really appreciate it all very much! Il post an update once its all said and done

By 6 pm tomarrow i will have a plate and a few screws holding my radius together and in place, once they straighten it.
Not the best pic but heres a side view, you can see how the radius got slammed into the joint and broke. The doc said your wrist normally sits at about a 15 degree angle with your arm, mine was closer to 60 degrees and 1 1/2 in shorter. lets get this train headin down the road to recovery!! thanks for the support from everybody, I really appreciate it!

As of this last Fluidride race at Mt. Hood, Kyle Henley is on the Life Cycles/ DH coalition team racing Expert 19-29 I do Believe for the 2009 season! Jack and I took his new teammate to Shotgun Creek to break him in and get some slick shots.
After having parting ways with his bike unintentionally, jack opted to shoot some shots and even snagged a few of me
Gotta love the NW

Sorry for the serious lack of updates lately, been moving and spendin more time in the ol place of employment. Not to mention lots of time on the trail bike ridin and not enough filming..
Not to worry, I got my camera stabilizer fixed up yesterday and took it for a trial run, should have some new footy with it soon!
I wish I could pull half that stuff on my 26
Oh yea, the demo day was pretty radical. Not as many bikes as one might think 8 manufacturers would bring but once I learned that a lot of the bikes were the teams personal bikes (like the Evil guys) I was quite alright with it. There were even a couple redbull riders in attendance, semenuk was filming when he wasnt gettin checked out by medics and Stevie was in to do a little shredding.
enjoy the random goodies, especially the Tomtom club. If you dont enjoy them, well, thats just like your opinion, man.
