Category 1 racer Ryan Barnett is recovering at the Shepherd Spinal Clinic, from a collision with a car last on May 3rd. Ryan, who is the marketing manager for Blue Competition Cycles, was out for a quick spin prior to Sunday's Sandy Springs Classic criterium when the accident occurred. Ryan fractured his skull, broke ribs and his pelvis and fractured his back in the T3 and T4 vertebrae area. Ryan has "some paralysis from the waist down." Atlanta's Shepherd Center is where cyclist Saul Raisin was treated after his 2006 accident. Ryan will have surgery on May 15th to try to relieve pressure on the spine, remove any bone fragments and fuse vertabrae together and possibly reduce the paralysis.
You can visit Ryan here, and follow his road to recovery, and even leave him messages!
