Palmer shows off video of his first time back on the bike after knee surgery – GEICO AMA EnduroCross News Release
Irvine, CA (April 25, 2012) – If you have ever been to a GEICO AMA EnduroCross event or watched one on TV, you have probably noticed Wild Wally Palmer. He is a madman on the track that always gives it 100% and typically catches more air than anybody. And in spite of some ugly crashes that led to a destroyed knee in 2011, he made it to every event and continued to attract more fans along the way. He literally used duct tape to hold his knee together at the Everett Washington event and still qualified for the main event on his two wheel drive Christini.
After the Vegas finals in November, Palmer finally got a much needed knee surgery and is just now back on a Trials bike to start getting ready for the Las Vegas opening round coming up inside the Orleans Arena on Friday, May 4th. He sent over a link to this video showing some POV action at his EnduroCross practice track along with this note; “I’m going to start riding a big bike on Thursday for the first time since the last EnduroCross. My leg is feeling good. Here is the track I made that is pretty close to the Vegas track map. I even made the over and under bridge. Check it out!” Here is the link: http://youtu.be/y-kua3pgXyg
If you are planning a trip to see the Monster Energy Supercross finals in Las Vegas, then make sure that you come in a day early to catch the GEICO AMA EnduroCross by Lucas Oil championship opener, which is an X Games Qualifier. If you have never watched one in person, you will be blown away by the obstacles and intense racing action.
