The greatest writer in motocross, Eric Johnson, has posted a "whatcha been up to?" interview with Travis Pastrana at Racer X Online. You gotta read it.
Pastrana is, in my opinion, bigger than motocross. He's such a likable person, always friendly, always upfront and honest. He has suffered more injuries in his amateur and professional racing days than a full gate of riders, but he still loves the sport. But he's now mature enough to know when it's time to sit on the sidelines and heal for a bit. It's sad that we won't get to see his unmistakable riding style for at least a year, probably two, but that's okay. He'll still be Travis, and that's fine with me.
Go get 'em, TP!
