US Junior rider badly injured

Joe Trujillo, a 15 1/2 year-old Junior rider and one of the Reno Wheelmen's rising stars, was badly injured when he struck a tree during a 3/4/5 support race at the NorCal/Nevada Masters Championships. Injuries include a torn liver, bruised lung, broken jaw and wrist, along with facial fractures. Joe is currently in the pediatric ICU unit at Washoe Medical and faces a long road to recovery. Encouragement e-mails will certainly be appreciated and can be sent to: [email protected].

I think we should all send get well soon e-mails to our fellow junior cyclist.
Yes, I just sent an e-mail to him and we need to show our support. To imagine having this type of incident yourself is nearly too excruciating.
