Ahh, but Travis is a professional, Dave. That means he gets the good stuff. While we mortals get by with casts and slings, pros get titanium rods and screws as the rule...gets 'em back on the bike in a couple weeks.
I once broke my clavicle in two places going over the bars, and was riding (albeit slowly) a quad the next day.
I also split my tibia 7" and compacted my ankle up 5mm landing short...and flew to Germany two days later for a job interview at Adidas...got the surgery/screws when I got home a week later.
