Just thinking out loud. I've had a couple people that I raced with growing up that had this type of fracture and they both had to give up moto per doctor's advice. Does anyone have any knowledge about this type of fracture, and will he even be able to race again with it?

Who knows. Pourcel came back and had success racing after his back injury but everyone is different.

Didn’t Trey Canard have a similar or worse spinal injury also?

Will he physical be able to come back? Yes I think so because both Christian Craig and Christophe Pourcel came back from worse because they lost their feeling in the legs. Pourcel even for months.

I also remember one of the King brothers breaking his neck back in the late '90 and he came back to. He was running around with such a halo. So if the surgery goes well without troubles and his rehab goes OK he can be back before we normal humans even realize.

But mentally is mostly the biggest bridge to pass. He has heaps of time to think about what happened and can't just hop back on the bike and forget about it. And now he probably thinks he has enough from motocross, but then when he gets OK from the doctor he will swing a leg over the bike just because he loves it. And when he love is still there he will be training and be on the start gate before we know it.

Just got a message from his camp. Sounds like all is going well.

“Jeremy will make a full recovery. There was zero complications on the fracture it’s a matter of setting the vertebrae with titanium rods and then it will heal just like any other fracture. It’s l1 vertebrae, if it was higher up you run into problems with fusing and mobility.”

Awesome! This is good to hear. I was worried by the way he was laying after the crash. Hoping for a quick recovery.

Before I say anything...please don't start an ignorant debate about religion. That is not my intention. I'm 60 years old. I have seen unexplainable things. Personally, I choose to call them miracles....you call them whatever you want. Anything, and I mean ANYTHING is possible. I'm hoping for the best and leave it at that.

Holy crap....as I was posting the above message came in....told you so.

Great news, The injury list seems to get larger and more severe each year. Hope he has a full recovery.

Jeremy is one tough little SOB! I have no doubt he will make a full recovery and comeback.
And thanks for passing along the updates.

Good to hear. Any word on if Justin Cooper sustained any injuries? He got tossed off his bike pretty good as well. I know he finished the moto but adrenaline can push ya through injuries.

Yep. My neurosurgeon said the same thing. Ok, sure ?. I had the orthopedic surgeon who fixed my shoulder years ago say “keep riding motorcycles, you guys keep me in business” ?

Pew. I got such a bad feeling yesterday when I saw him on the ground reaching for his back and not moving his legs as many others did. Glad he seems to be somewhat okey after the circumstances

lucky he stayed down, because what if he got up? He must have felt imminently that there was severe damage in his back, so keep lying there was the best thing to do.

Went to two bmx tracks yesterday with my boys (5-7) and came home and started watching the races. Got to the point of his crash and was watching him lay there.... turned if it off and said “that’s why my boys are bmx and not motorbikes”
Raced most of my younger adult life and and have broken my back too, but the head injury’s are what got to me, and want to minimize my kids chances at the bad injury’s.
Love to follow and watch racing still, but man... what a brutal sport.

On edit after I turned it off went straight to here to read what’s up.

Great news for JMart ! AC, Zacko, and now this. Has there ever been a series where the top 3 riders get knocked out with injuries?

I doubt he could have stood up if he wanted to. I had the same injury in Feb. I couldn’t stand but I foolishly had 2 guys try to stand me up. The pain down my legs was unbearable. I yelled “put me down, put me down”. I am super lucky that I didn’t end up with spinal cord damage after that. My injury required emergency surgery and 2 more surgeries after that. Docs told me I’m lucky to be walking.

I wish the outcome of every servere crash would be this good (or better ofc) Happy for J-Mart

I wish him all the best. I was sure KR was not coming back after his first arm injury let alone the 2nd so i am sure it’s possible. I just hope he gets good advice from his doctors and he follows it.

JMart will be getting some serious medical advice from the doctors to never ride again. Metal in your back is no joking matter if he ever had a similar crash again.
