Sam Reynolds crashed hard on a double flip today, over rotating it and injuring his back during Best Trick at Crankworx Les 2 Alpes. He was whisked straight away to the medical centre.
Word is he has two cracked vertabrae. This is unconfirmed but he was quickly taken from the course, strapped, and packed to be carted off to Grenoble for a scan. Do note he got stopped at the door by the admins who promptly poked a card machine in his face, asking for his credit card before he was allowed to leave. We will keep you updated as and when we get news. In the meantime go find Sam Reynolds on Facebook
and wish him all the very best.
Pinkbike wishes you a speedy recovery Sam! You'll be double flipping again in no time.Photo by Ale Di Lullo
