Shane is home from a spell in hospital, after falling and suffering a pelvic fracture. He’s in good spirits, but will need a period of rest and physiotherapy to get him back to full throttle! He wanted to post here his thanks for all the good wishes and get-well messages he received from fans and friends near and far. He hopes to be a two-legged mammal again soon!
