I hope he heals up quick and nothing is too serious. I road raced for over 10 years and luckily never had any serious life threatening accidents but a few trips to the ER along with all the other minor injuries that add up, motorcycle crashes can really take a toll on the body, especially when you aren't a kid.

Best wishes to Ryan and his family while he recovers. Also nice to see that he still represents some of his favorite RC brands on his moto gear!

Ouch. Coming from someone who had similar injuries at a similar age to Ryan (mine was bicycle vs truck, my chest was smashed to bits and I ended up with part of my lungs and ribs removed) it’s not an easy road to come back from. Potentially mental barrier as well as physical as well.

The injuries I suffered and inability to get back on a bike was what got me into RC racing…

Wish him a speedy recovery.

So back to RC toy cars pretty soon.... all it takes is a couple broken bones and slow healing
Don't ask me how I know
Prophetic...

Wow, that's terrible. I just checked his wife's IG and it sounds like he's already improving and might be ready to go home soon so that's really good to see. Hopefully he has a speedy recovery and a good support network around him.

You beat me to it - If I went through that and not a professional racer, I personally would have serious reservations about mounting a bike again. Here’s wishing him a speedy recovery!

Hope Ryan heals quickly as possible. Broken ribs and a partially collapsed lung from trying to race BMX again at 56 years old led me back to RC.........

Rc is the safest and most affordable motorsport. But nothing else compares to having your butt on the seat of the machine. Bodies are soft and earth is hard. Glad he's not dead or paralyzed He must have made a a few deposits and the big guy was looking out for him. Get better soon. Don't know if he's active on the forums.

Coming from someone who’s had to dodge an 8th scale on road race car flying at me off the main straight while turn marshaling years ago, I’d say it’s the 2nd safest…🙂 PC Sim racing on an immersive rig is right up there as well - and arguably just as pricey, but I like the social aspect and comraderie of RC racing.
