Ryan Morais FundraiserWednesday, January 25, 2012 | 2:50 PM
Rockstar Valli-Star Racing Yamaha team rider Ryan Morais was injured at the Los Angeles Supercross race on January 22, 2012. It happened in the first lap of the main event when Trey Canard hit a tuff block and was not able to jump the triple. Ryan was already committed to the jump and landed on Trey. Both riders were knocked unconscious. Ryan’s injuries were very substantial with fractured C1 C2 C6-7 T1, broken ribs, broken upper and lower jaw. As of January 24, 2012, Ryan is awaiting surgery to align his jaws and to wire his mouth shut for the next 8 weeks. He will also be wearing a C collar is keep his neck stable.
4 ½ months ago Ryan’s wife Hannah gave birth to their son Krue. Hannah is still on maternity leave and was expecting to go back to work in a few weeks. Ryan does have health insurance but the hospital they are at is out of network for them.
