: Doug crashed last night jumping at a monster
: truck show in Reading, PA. It was a tight
: rodeo arena. Doug had to come in thru the
: parking lot to hit the ramp. It was the
: second show of the day and it started
: raining right before the jump. The parking
: lot was slick and I could see he was having
: trouble making a turn and getting the needed
: speed. Doug shifted right before the ramp
: and went a bit long. The bike was a little
: crossed up and with a wet landing ramp he
: went down. The biked slide under the bull
: riding fence with Doug coming to a stop only
: a few feet before the fence. The sparkler
: was still lit and with the bike on its side
: gas was pouring out of the carb and onto the
: dirt which caused the bike to catch on fire.
: The Fire Department was slow, it took
: several minutes for the bike to be put out.
: Doug was attended to by the EMTís and a few
: minutes later was able to get up. Some might
: say a man jumping only a month after
: chemotherapy and into his 7th week of
: radiation after not eating solid food for a
: week is courageous. Others would say its
: insanity. Me, I think Doug just wanted to
: feel like himself again. And more important,
: he wanted to inspired the kids at the
: childrenís hospital the show was put on for.
: Today heís very sore, but unbelievably at
: this time we donít think anything is broken.
: The bike will need some work but it will get
: fixed. If you have a few minutes pray for
: everyone out there fighting Cancer. Pray
: they have the strength to fight and pray for
: recovery, thanks.
