    Hard to tell but it looks like he took the full force of the fall on his head?

    Word is broken jaw, but more or less ok. Which is amazing going down at about 50MPH.

    Good news on Jens. You can tell he's a real class-act with quotes like this:

    at the center I was forced to turn the focus away from myself as I witnessed the fates many times worse than my own that I felt guilty about having escaped so easily from the crash
