The Get Well Soon WR Thread

Post up on here so he can have something to look at when he's on the computer next. I figure it'd be a nice surprise.

He's the bloody bf mascot, even if he doesn't shave his legs.

Maybe he's going to rethink that when he gets back on the bike.

WR, my best wishes. Heal up quick and I hope your family is doing as well if not better than you are!

My wife tells me to be careful every time I ride--for three years, without fail. I know she would have harder time recovering than I would.

Just caught up on this in the 33 Twitter feed - yikes. Get well soon WR, hope Mrs WR is over the nurse's clumsy handling of the situation.

Here's to reading far fewer BF crash reports for the rest of 2010.

Although I don't usually post on this side of the boarder, WR has been a great source of inspiration with my pathetic training since I joined BF.
WR, here's wishing you a speedy recovery, physically, mentally, and emotionally. I'll cross the lines of P&R and say a prayer for you and your family, I'm sure your wife and son are probably having a tough go of things right now.
Best wishes,
jb

Get well, dude. I know where you're coming from. I'm just getting back on the bike after a pretty serious crash last month. Make sure to give it plenty of time to heal. Oreos might not fix it, but, seriously, is anyone willing to chance not trying?
