For those who don't believe it can happen, check out the link Here's the link to a MXer with a femur fracture convieniently located at the top of his knee brace. http://www.motonews.com/mototalk2/showflat...sb=5&o=0&fpart= This is the same injury the KT Missouri had The link is broken, so here it is: lifted from a great AUSSIE site - http://www.fullnoise.com.au/ Jay Marmont out for at least six months Tuesday, 18th October, 2005 U.S Red Bull KTM rider Jay Marmont has suffered a s serious practice crash at his home track in Wollongong NSW, which could take him off the bike for up to six months. Whilst landing a triple jump, a split pin worked loose on his foot peg, providing Marmont with no landing structure but the dirt. Marmont’s right leg took full impact of his crash, clean breaking his right femur just above his protective knee brace. Marmont underwent immediate surgery at Wollongong Hospital where a metal rod was placed from his hip through his femur to his knee. Commenting on his accident Marmont said, "I had only just recovered from a snapped interior cruciate in my left knee that happened back in June, so to now break my right femur I'm obviously extremely disappointed. "I was going to take on the American East Coast Supercross Championship with KTM next year in late February but I now look like missing the first few rounds. "Doctors said it would take longer than it did for my earlier injury to my knee to recover, so hopefully my femur will also heal sooner than the proposed six months. "KTM's American management team Larry Brooks and Kurt Nicoll have both confirmed their support for me to return to the KTM America Factory Team as soon as I'm fit enough. It's comforting to know my international ride is not in jeopardy which makes me all the more determined to focus on recovering as soon as I can. "The Australian dirt bike community has also shown great support for me including my former Australian factory team, Motorex KTM. Fans and industry folks have also been sending me their well wishes and I’m very grateful for their encouragement." Marmont rose to fame in 2004 winning his first Australian Supercross Masters Championship with the Motorex KTM Racing Team, he then followed up with another win in 2005 at the now defunct Australian Supercross Nationals before signing with KTM America to ride in the USA. Marmont is now recovering at his home in Wollongong NSW, where he will be stationed for at least four weeks before he can begin physiotherapy and then look to return to the States early next year. Marmont will also be making a guest appearance at the final round of the Nokia Supercross Masters at WIN Stadium in Wollongong on Saturday 29 October, in support of his younger brother Ryan, who will be racing in the Australian Championship finale.
