Back On But With Sad News

We are back up and running! There may be a hic-up or two along the way, but we are stoked to be back on again. As the title says our being back on is tempered with some sad sad news. Arielle Martin, the Olympic BMX racer from Utah Valley, has just had a serious crash during what was going to be her last practice lap before her Olympic debut. The crash lacerated her liver, and caused pneumothorax (collapsed lung) in her right lung. Her injuries were initially life threatening but she has since been moved to a trauma unit, and is expected to have a full recovery. We hope that Arielle has a speedy recovery, and are looking for a way to let her know we are all thinking of her. For now head over to her Facebook page, and add your thoughts/words of support.
