John Brisco in ICU
« on: April 08, 2021, 01:22:30 pm »
Just hurt the terrible news that John Brisco was involved in a motorbike accident and is in ICU, He was found unconscious in the  bush by 2 other riders, events are sketchy at this stage. Im trying to get more info but this is all I can confirm at this stage.

John Brisco was the owner of Gear Up in Durban and is actively involved with Jan Staal, Stefan Boshoff @SGB and Country Trax, think he is the trainer for KZN.

Will update if I get any news.

He is in Durban, not sure which hospital, but rumours are he broke his shoulder, some ribs and puncture a lung.

Spoke to Alfie, Was riding his KTM 500 in the bush between Empangeni and Mtunzini, he cant remember what happened, still in lots of pain but looks like he will be going home today. Broken collar bone and ribs. Had some issues breathing but looks like he's OK now. He was riding with some other guys but they were not close when he fell, they just found him unconscious.

Reply from John.

I’m ok thanks - high speed off on the 500. Not sure why it happened (cows pot holes) other than locking front and went on an outer space trip.. landing very untidy resulting in a knockout blow for two - three minutes!! Danie, JP and Johan did a great recovery job. Have 8 broken ribs, collar bone and lekker roasties. Thanks for your concern!!

please pass on my gratitude to all the well wishes. Just as a personal experience please remember to advise riders who ride ABS and non ABS bikes that in an emergency the brain does not necessarily send the correct reactions to the front brake - pull as hard as you like vs ‘feathering’ and pulling without locking!

Yes, heal well, I bought the same T shirt about 8yrs ago, was out for about 10 minutes.

Does anyone know if John has a brother named Mickey?
