Let’s start with me being sick in China, with several trips to the doctor and hospital for meds and some liquids. Seven days and counting with a nasty stomach virus.
My agent from Macau came over to Hong Kong to meet me and deliver my freshly painted helmets from Thailand. They look pretty cool!
I then hopped on a flight from China through Malaysia into France-18 hours total on Malaysian Airlines-Yes, I am the ultimate risk-taker.

Special feature blog: Dan Kruger recounts "most unbelievable week of my career" after winning Pan-Delta final this past weekend
Last week we reported that Canadian Dan Kruger had a vicious highside during practice for the final round of the Pan Delta Championship series in Zhuhai, China that landed him in a Hong Kong hospital with severe injuries and internal bleeding. He then sent Inside Motorcycles this exclusive recap of what he called "the most unbeleivable weekend of my career."
1. Hospital in China for initial diagnosis - pain meds, catheter inserted, X-rays, etc.
2. transported to Hong Kong hospital for further tests. Internal bleeding is the problem, with a fractured pelvis and a ruptured urethra.
3. Bleeding gets worse internally so they put me into surgery right away; two and half hours later, I wake up and things are much improved. They put some plastic parts inside me to reconstruct the damage.
