Emig mentioned he may be not even be able to return to racing. It sounds pretty serious.

Sucks...couldnt have happened to a nicer guy.

Here to hoping it gets better and he's back racing again.

Man, what a terrible thing. And they found out their son was autistic this year, too. Prayers sent for the Langston family, for sure...

Sucks !!! I hope thats false info. But at least he still has his mobility and isnt sitting on a chair for the rest of his life.

I know he was/is back in South Africa and visiting a few doctors here to have a operation to try and help his condition. Lets hope he gets well so we can see him back on the track.

yea that sux about GL. My brother worked for ktm while grant was riding for them, he had nothing but good stuff to say about grant. I dont know him at all but from what I hear he really is a genuine guy, level headed and a all around good dude. I wish he had the chance to run his #1 plate this year...

His problem has nothing to do with a crash. You noobs need to do some research before you post.

he did say in a TV interview (at GH I believe) that the visioin thing seemed to be getting worse instead of better and that was after surgery. Did not sound real hopeful.

AND...Chicka...Hambone is a good friend of GL and vistis here often...you post the pics here and Hambone can let GL know where to look...Make your own thread: PRIVATE pics for GL, CO SH105...We promise not to look (too often).



Wish the best for GL and family.

didnt the eye thing start from him getting laser eye surgery? Thats what I heard, could be wrong.

man that would really suck huh!

theres a lot of pro athletes out there that get lasik eye surgery and if its true in grants case (which i dont know if it is or not) then thats just another case of badluck!

His eye was leaking fluid from the back side and it caused his vision to blur. They did some procedures on it and it went away UNTIL he crashed and suffered a concussion. They are not sure if the two are related. For everyday life his vision is good, for going fast on a motorcycle not so much.

The first one they were concerned because his dad had the same prob and went blind in the eye. The second they think his eye reacts slowly becouse of the concussion.

damn...what's up sunshine?

no he isn't but he does have an eyeball issue that may be hereditary. could lose his vision i heard. so riding isn't first on his list at this point i presume. grant is a super nice guy and his wife is pretty cool too. sometimes bad things happen to good folks and this appears to be one of those times.

he was one of the few that had no fear and gave it 100% all the time. not many of those around anymore....
