Actor Paulo Avelino got into a motorbike accident and dislocated his shoulder as he was racing on the Tuason Racing School track. The actor was in the middle of completing his level 3 and 4 courses under the California Superbike School Philippines (CSSPH). The CSSPH is a Parañaque-based bike training center affiliated with the Tuason Racing School.
In his post, Paulo recounts the details of the accident: “Yes, I did crash again and although it was a low side crash, unfortunately I dislocated my right shoulder for the first time (It was painful btw). Tuason Racing and the event organizers immediately rushed me to the hospital where they were able to pop my shoulder back in (hurt even more) but immediately felt relief over my right shoulder.”
We were ready to panic about the actor’s accident, but he seemed unfazed: “Upon checking the extent of the mobility of my shoulder I asked if I could go back to the track and after going for a few laps, Voila! I am still fully capable of riding, but definitely at a slower pace due to minimal discomfort on my right shoulder,” he wrote. Paulo Avelino is set to undergo physical therapy for this injury to his right shoulder.
We love Paulo’s perspective about what happened. He took the mishap ride in stride and acknowledged how he could turn it around for the better: “Sometimes, we just have to slow down, assess what we've been doing wrong, swallow your pride, and accept our mistakes. Then finally, come out as a better person. Full speed ahead!”
Paulo often hits the road with a biker group called Tambike Manila, and sometimes joins The Brap Pack. Both groups of biker boys, er, men, have among its members quite a number of notable celebrities, directors, and creative artists.
We’re sending you a get-well hug, Paulo. Keep riding!
