Long-time CMG editor and resident curmudgeon (and one of my best
friends), Larry Tate, was involved in an on track incident during the
SOAR endurance race Saturday, September 12 at Cayuga that left him
with seven broken ribs and a punctured lung.
According to a rider who saw the incident, with approximately five
minutes left in the endurance race, another rider passed Larry on the
outside of a turn, swooped across to get a line on the next corner and
clipped Larry’s front wheel, putting him down hard.
Larry was taken to Hamilton General hospital for treatment and
observation and, as of ten o’clock Monday morning, was stabilized and
waiting for transport to Belleville, closer to his Napanee home. He is
expected to be there for a couple of days until he’s well enough to be
Geez Larry, when I broke my shoulder blade and two ribs at Mosport in
August, I wasn’t throwing down a challenge for you to try and go one
More as it develops.
