"R.I.P. my longtime friend. You where a perfect example of what a husband, father, brother, employee , friend and many more things we all should be here on earth. You where definitely a inspiration to the sport and hobby we love. You were also the guy that anyone could call for a favor or help.You will be missed but not forgotten. The Marty Howell stories will continue!!! Oh , I do have one more favor my friend. When I get heaven. Can you make sure the trails arent so tight in your section? And make sure all the faceslappers are gone."

Figure some of the older offroad riders might know Marty.

"Update on my dad. He was involved in a 4 rider crash Sunday morning. Unfortunately his spine was broken in 3 places. He currently has no feeling from the chest down. He also a severely broken right arm that the doctors are calling partially amputated. Hopefully they will be able to save his arm. So far he has had 2 surgeries with at least 2 more coming. He needs to pass a breathing test before they can remove the tube. Hopefully this afternoon. He has a tough road ahead but I will be by his side the whole way. It’s hard to see my best friend in this condition. I love you dad."

Post from his son, Martin on Facebook

Accident was March 21 at Rio Bravo. Jim Cooper was riding with him and pretty much has the same injuries except for the arm. Jim has been able to go home although still paralyzed from chest down currently.

So sad to read. Prayers up for the family and their loss.

Forgive my naivety, but was the faceboook post referring to Marty Howell and posted by his son Martin?
Or is it speaking of Jim Cooper?

Yes, sorry for confusion. FB by Martin, his son, about Marty. But both were critically injured and flown out. Jim is home recovering.
