First race of the season. Chaos

Sun was a beut dry day at Leicester speedway an I had the pleasure of trying my Triumph for the first time. 
The bike went well but I only managed one race on it as the 2nd race was on my Yam and I fell and broke my ankle.

That's me on the outside running a bit wide. The bike definatly has potential to be competitive.

There were loads of other very cool bikes racing in the vintage class.
After I fell I looked at my foot and it appeared to by attached to my leg at a very strange angle. 
The paramedics were strait on it , they ambulanced me off of the track then gave me a bottle of Nitros oxide to suck on. The next ambulance took so long to arrive that I got to sit in the sun and use a whole bottle before they picked me up. 
Liecester hospital was not a great place but they did manage to squeeze my ankle into position ( probley the worst pain I've had) twice until they stuck it in a cast. 
I've now got an appointment to get it screwed together at a local hospital. 
You can see below that both sides of my ankle are broke.
