I recently met this guy, Tom, he setup the suspension on my YZ.
He was the WC champion last year up until he had a massive off, he hit a ditch at full speed on his 250, check the bike

Tom Claasen? What does he want for the scrap?

Went to a party last year with Tom...was still in a wheelchair after the orf, had an op on his knees.

By 3 o'clock he flipped his wheelchair next to the swimmingpool after his "wheely" went wrong.

The swimming pool was on a hillside, by 4 o'clock we had a runaway wheelchair down the hill after his berm round the shallow end of the pool went wrong...his wife was livid...lol
