Most of you have probably seen young Peter Lenz flying past everyone during any of the school days. I follow him through Facebook. Here's a post from yesterday. Here's to a speedy recovery!

 

Peter had a bad crash today and is in the Pediatric ICU at Legacy Emmanuel Hospital in Portland. He is OK, sleeping well and stable, he broke his left lower leg, his left upper leg, and his left upper arm. He is expected to have a full and complete recovery. NOTE: The accident was not due to any failing in his riding abilities.

Saw Peter at the GP over the weekend, he ended watching one of the races on Sunday at our booth---enthusiastically describing some of problems in the race--maybe he'll get a side job as an announcer.

Hopefully that means he's in the USGPRU if it comes around here this year. They haven't marked it on the CCS calendar. Fingers crossed.

Peter rode two weeks ago in Florida. A bit rusty but the smile was back under the helmet.

 

Did you guys have to drive to that??????

 

Really glad he's back in the saddle :)

According to news on the Soup homepage, Peter passed away today in a tragic accident on the warmup lap for today's race. My thoughts go to the family. May he rest in peace.

I really liked following his story up until today's heartbreaking FB update. What an inspiration he is to everyone who has met him or seen him ride. Just a great and extremely polite kid who had such a bright future. My condolences to his family.

My condolences to the family also; I cannot fathom the heartbreak. A lot of people thought he was a pretty nice kid. I was at the race and heard he crashed but figured he would restart. I was so excited to see him in action; one of my friends I was with and I were talking about cool it was to have him on the TOTW2 DVD. I didn't find out until just now what had happened. I am so sorry.

My heart goes out to the family. I was truly saddened to read of his death. Everyone who rides is part of a great family, and we have all now suffered a great loss in such an outstanding youn man.

Very sad news, & my heart & prayers go out to the Lenz family & the Zayat family.

 

Such a bright star cut short in a tragedy...

 

I never got the chance to meet the kiddo, but I had been following his career & watching his youtube videos for about the last 2 years. His skill in crushing guys on much bigger bikes with just a 125 made me want to start riding a 125 myself.

 

Just recently I was watching A Twist of the Wrist 2 dvd, & there he was, a charming little guy destined for a huge career.

 

Is there someone who can make Peter Lenz Memorial Patches? I would like to get a couple to wear on my leathers & Jackets.
