And let's not forget the bone-breaking crashes he has recovered from --

For example (paraphrasing only slightly from his own words): a Talus fracture that was the worst fracture his orthopeadic surgeon had seen. It was in 20 pieces. The surgeons put 6 3-1/2 inch screws in the ankle. He was on crutches for 4-1/2 months and wore a cane for 3 weeks. He also broke his c7 vertabrea and had huge head trauma. All the skin on the left hand side of his body was scraped off .

And he is gracious to boot --

Thanks, Henk, for the pleasure of letting us see you compete.
