Tim Jackson (the MasiGuy) in the hospital

by Commute by Bike

One of the frequent commenters here at Commute by Bike and a good friend of mine, Tim Jackson (the MasiGuy), was involved in a wreck during a track race a couple nights ago. He hit the boards at close to 40mph and has plenty of injuries to show for it.

  • concussion (he was out for five minutes)
  • cracked ribs
  • several cracked vertebrae in his neck
  • distended eye
  • cracked knee/kneecap
  • almost severed his right thumb

So far the docs are expecting a full recovery but he’s in a lot of pain… although the morphine button at his side keeps him in decent spirits.

If you’ve ever met Tim Jackson you’ll know there’s not a guy on the planet more passionate about the bicycle. If you’d like to send well wishes or donations, visit this post at the Racer Blue Squirrel’s blog.

    Tim Jackson’s the real deal — a very nice and friendly guy and, like Tim G wrote, passionate about bikes.
