The whole thing with Victor and Bobby Abu Dhabi is horrible
The man is lucky to be alive. It’s slightly better situation then when I thought it was a hangman’s fracture (C2) but only marginally it feels like.
It’s not impossible he won’t come back to riding but I will say it’s highly unlikely since having read up on Tim Don (triathlete who suffered a C2 fracture) recovery is difficult. There’s only two known days to treat it from what I understand. Surgery or the halo. I’m not sure if it gets much better with a C3.
