It's true that your scaphoid fracture is unusual in its orientation. However, as the main long term complication of a scaphoid fracture is AVN of the proximal pole, it seems you are at lower risk for that happening as the fracture has not gone across the entire transverse length of the scaphoid.

Your orthopaedic surgeon may fix the fracture to prevent malunion/non-union. In any case, with proper treatment, you probably stand a good chance of not having any significant long-term complications and hopefully you'll be back on your bike soon.
