    This is really really horrible...brings me to tears. I have had the privilege to get to know Scott, very well, over the last 2 months. He is a super super young kid and comes from a great family. Scott...stay strong...the Zaremba's are praying for you. Tim, if you need anything please do not hesitate to call.

    This is Scotts aunt and uncle. Scott fractured his T5 and T6. Surgery went well, the spine was not severed and there was no spinal fluid leakage. His surgeon first said that he could walk tomorrow or it could take up to two years. He will remain in the hospital in a spinal rehab clinic for approximately 3 weeks. The last we heard from the dr's this evening were stating he has a 1% chance of walking again. Please keep the Scarvelli family in your prayers. Scott is a fighter and being a great trooper through this ordeal. We will try to update daily.

    Wow this is crazy. How did he land was it on a hump or the Flat ground? Hopefully he gets back to normal and will be ok.

    I pray for his full recovery efforts in the coming years ahead.

    If I may ask one question for you to answer: Was he wearing a Leatt brace?

    Now I'm not trying to hijack the thread but ===> I'm not saying that he should of been, or that he should not of been wearing one, i'm just curious to know because I think i'm drawing a link between the thoracic injuries and the Leatt brace. It seems like individuals are injuring there T5, T6 when riders are wearing them. I'M NOT SAYING DON'T WEAR THEM for people who have them, it's a very detailed decision for each individual. I just feel like there should be more research on this type of equipment to see where all the force of impact is being redistributed to...it has to go somewhere. Leatts were originally designed for car racers that aren't necessarily landing on their heads.

    Again, my deepest wishes for a full and speedy recovery.

    Yes he was wearing a leatt (or some neck brace like it) and yes it was broken.

    He wrecked in a small rhythm section along the outside of the track and tumbled through them and along the fence/retaining wall. It didnt look like a really nasty crash IMO but obviously it was.

    Again my thoughts and prayers go to him and his family
