Might be time to put on those skid buckets, lads. I’m not in any position to tell you what to do, but the whole “Too street for a helmet” thing is pretty fucking dumb. I mean, do what you will, but take into consideration next time you’re getting gnarly, that Aitken, Berringer and now Van have all ended up in hospital.
This is what TCU posted:
“Straight off the Orchid site: “You probably heard by now that Van Homan hit his head in X-Games street practice, which put him out of the event. So instead of medals at summer X, he gets a nice relaxing hospital stay. I got some news from Van’s wife Samantha so I thought I’d share. Sounds like he’s doing better. “We are in the ICU, he’s got a skull fracture and a little bit of bruising and a tiny bit of blood on the brain. He’s responsive just tired and antsy. They should be moving him into regular care tomorrow.” Get well soon Van!”
So ahh.. that’s it. It sucks.
Get well soon, Van.
