Doctors discover 4 broken bones for Byrne

“Bad news 4 broken bones in my foot, good news, not displaced...” - Shane Byrne.
Double BSB champion Shane Byrne hasn't escaped as lightly as he thought from the 70mph head-on road accident on January 9.

Amazingly, the 2012 PBM Kawasaki rider, who was also knocked down by another car after getting out of his wrecked van, originally thought the only injury to himself or his family was a 'sore ankle' after his shoe was ripped off.

But a further check-up on Friday revealed that the Englishman has suffered multiple broken bones in his left foot:

“Uh oh, Friday 13th... Just been to change dressings on my foot & Dr's aren't happy, sending me 4 another x-ray...” he wrote on Twitter page @67Shakey.

“Bad news 4 broken bones in my foot, good news, not displaced and I saved them cutting off a pair of Armanis ;-)”

This could have been MUCH worse. Like most guys in the paddock, Shakey is a man made from steel and this will be just a minor hindrance to him. Main thing is that his family is fine and his Armanis are okay :) Go Shakey!
