Yes, I did crash again and although it was a low side crash, unfortunately I dislocated my right shoulder for the first time (It was painful btw). Tuason Racing and the event organizers immediately rushed me to the hospital where they were able to pop my shoulder back in (hurt even more) but immediately felt relief over my right shoulder. Upon checking the extent of the mobility of my shoulder I asked if I could go back to the track and after going for a few laps, Voila! I am still fully capable of riding, but definitely at a slower pace due to minimal discomfort on my right shoulder. I was able to finish my whole CSSPH course for this year, level 3 and 4. Sometimes we just have to slow down, assess what We've been doing wrong, swallow your pride and accept our mistakes. Then finally, come out as a better person. Full speed ahead! @californiasuperbikeschoolph @wheeltek_official @tuasonracing @theeuromonkeys
