Dirt Bike News - Mike Lafferty Knee Injury Update - Dirt Rider Magazine

Hello sponsors, friends and fans. I would like to give you a progress report on Mike's knee injury.Mike has been doing extensive rehab with a sports therapist for the pat three months, along with many hours of stationary bicycle time to get his range of motion back and keep his cardiovascular training up.His surgeon released Mike on June 3rd to start riding again on a limited basis, while stepping up his training program to include running, weight training and serious mountain biking.If every thing continues to go well Mike is scheduled to have a final consultation with his surgeon on July 2nd so that he can hopefully be released to start racing again.He will restart his 2004 season at Round 10 of the GNCC series in Millfield, Ohio on July 11th if he is released.Mike would like to thank every one for their help in getting him through this tough injury, and is very excited to be getting back to the track.
