Social Scoop 11

Michael's Picks

Ouch! Ouch! And ouch! The plane ride home was probably not the most comfortable... Get well soon Jake!

Jake Weimer: Update: so I was suppose to get an MRI yesterday and got in the tube and full blown lost my marbles and couldn't get it done. I've done a handful of MRI's and never had a problem so I don't know what happen... I went back this morning and got it done so I should have results tomorrow morning. I have a slight separated shoulder but that is no worries (could ride with that right now). Swelling has gone down in my back a little. I will let you know the results from the MRI.
Tickle angry... Tickle smash pitboard!

A few weeks ago, Jeff Northrop called out a few guys in the Ice Bucket challenge on Instagram while trying to raise money for his Nephew's brain injury. Since then, it's spread around the moto and mtb industry as everyone completes the challenge and calls out their buddies. Cam Zink's gave a me a bigger laugh than usual though.

Cam Zink: @cammccaul called out @brianlopes55 and I for the #icebucketchallenge . I got it done just before heading to the airport from @highland_mtn @tylermccaul filmed and edited it. I woke up @dberrecloth and called him out. I'm calling him and @mike_mason81 out!
Jimmy Albertson may have missed a few details of the challenge...

    Bonds had tried to take GL out first, at the top of that big double, the one that turned left afterwards and bonds let him have it. But that was not the only altercation. The GL take out was probably not to be as harsh as it was, however it was down a straight. If memory serves.

    Bonds was lightning fast outdoors. Before PC Kawi he rode Hondas, and they used to send him a new bike once a week because he was so hard on them.

    Weimers back is so gnar!!! and i am the same way, i can NOT get in the MRI "tube" without freaking the hell out and "losing my marbles". CT scans i am ok with.

    dude the first time I 'woke up' after my accident was in the tube.. I had no clue where I was or why I was in there haha I freaked, all the noises and shit.. not cool

    I always felt that there was a reason his wheel broke in that last moto of the year and this was that reason...

    Isn't that GL taking out Bobby Bonds and more or less ending his career? Seems kinda fucked up to post that...

  • ML512

    6/23/2014 1:47 PM

    Yes, that is Bonds. I wasn't aware that he was injured from this though.

  • JW381

    6/23/2014 1:51 PM

    I'm pretty sure he was, but I could be wrong. Hold on, I'll consult my French friend Googl'e.

    Yup, you were right, he wasn't hurt. My bad.

  • mag23

    He was hurt, bad... He was layin on the track for a while, and his elbow was shattered. I'm a huge GL fan, but I seriously can't believe he's making light of the situation with a TBT...Pretty sure it was Bond's second National, he holeshot and was leading... There used to a long down hill section, prob 4th gear wfo. That was the dirtiest move I've seen on a track.

    That's what I thought I remember reading somewhere, and that he had a hard time recovering from that. That's why I was surprised to see it as a throwback.
