As you can imagine, after crashing out of the 2013 Dakar when it had taken 25 plus years to get here, I was extremely disappointed to say the least! But what hit me harder and totally over whelmed me, was all the support and “gutted for you” messages that came pouring in via Facebook, Twitter, Emails and Texts, I didn’t realise how many people were following me!!
I’ve been seeing a Phiso weekly for the last 5 months for the badly dislocated/ torn shoulder which i sustained on day two of The Dakar 2013. Finally, it’s stopped being painful all the time, have gained vertically full movement back and I’m back on the mountain bike, in the gym and been out a few times on the Dakar bike green laning. At last, that’s taken some time to settle back down! The shoulder recovery was what i was waiting for before deciding when was the right time to take The Dakar back on; I have Unfinished Business with this bad boy!
