“In the second Moto at Unadilla, I had a crash in a tricky turn, ultimately ending with a red flag for the race. I went down pretty hard of a direct result of the bike hitting me from behind. I am currently at a hospital in Cooperstown, NY where we are waiting for some swelling to go down in my back before doing surgery. At this time I have limited feeling from my waist down. The hope is that after the swelling goes down, I will get some more feeling back. Thank you all for your support, kind thoughts and prayers. I will keep you posted in the next few days!”
Hopefully he regains full movement. It was only a few races ago another TLD KTM rider was the victim of his motorcycle. Shane McElrath crashed with a few turns left to go at Southwick. He sustained a shoulder injury, broken ribs and a bruised lung. We are pulling for Jessy Nelson to make a full recovery, just as we would any other rider. Road to Recovery has set up a page for those interested in donating for Jessy’s medical expenses here.
