2000 AMA Grand National Cross Country Series, Round 9: Brownsville Luzerne Park,
Brownsville, Pennsylvania, June 17-18, 2000

Rain turned the course into another muddy mess at round nine of the AMA Grand
National Cross Country Series, held in Brownsville, Pennsylvania$B!G(Bs Luzerne
Park. With conditions so treacherous, Honda$B!G(Bs Scott Summers opted to run at
relatively pedestrian pace on his XR650R and simply finish the race without
injuring his left leg, which remains painful over a year after breaking it.
Faced with the traditional GNCC summer break - the next race taking place at the
end of August - Summers is now waiting to see what course of action his doctors
advise. $B!H(BI$B!G(Bm going to find out this week. I$B!G(Bve already got two opinions; I$B!G(Bm
waiting to get the third opinion from Doctor [Arthur] Ting out in San Francisco.
I$B!G(Bm going to let him tell me what I need to do. I$B!G(Bll probably have to have a
surgery, but I$B!G(Bm not exactly sure what kind of surgery. I$B!G(Bm just kind of
waiting to find out whether I$B!G(Bm going to get the rod [in the femur] replaced or
whether I$B!G(Bm going to get some of the screws taken out of the existing rod.
