Word received from my son, Jay, in Sudbury that our grandson, Kyle, had the misfortune to break his hand while falling off a bike. But this did not keep him from participating in the final go-cart races of the season last weekend.
Hampered with the injury, Kyle had difficulty controlling his kart.
While he placed third in the first heat, first in the second one, and second in the final, he wound up losing the season championship by just two points.
But Kyle is not disappointed. Rather, he is getting ready for the awards night and preparing for another racing season next year.
