  1. I don't have much news as yet, but Phil had a big accident this afternoon and was airlifted to St George Hospital. As far as I know he has at least a broken femur and broken wrist, but he is conscious and not in danger. As soon as I know more I'll post....

  2. wishing them a speedy recovery. pls keep us updated.
  3. Sorry to hear of Phil's accident. Best wishes to him for a speedy recovery.
  4. Ouch, broken femur normally implies a damned nasty hit.

    Good to hear he's not in danger. Best wishes and fast knitting!
  5. Terrible news.. Best wishes rc
  6. I just talked to his daughter and I'm heading up to St Geroge; he was riding up Macquarie Pass and a truck coming down was on the wrong side of the road and he hit Phil head on......

    When I know more......
  7. Hoping for a speedy recovery for you mate!
  8. Damn.

    Didn't he have a potentially bad off not so long ago? That's bad luck, even for a Honda rider.

    Best wishes to all concerned.
  9. Fingers crossed Paul and extend my best wishes to Phil.
