Aaron Gwin has announced he will be missing the Maribor DH World Cup this week after an injury sustained during the second round of the US Downhill National Series at Mountain Creek.
The crash happened during practice for the race at Mountain Creek last weekend. In his social media video, Aaron explains that he was cruising on one of his first laps and as he got some air over a blind jump he spotted a loose rock that had rolled into the track. "I could see it as I was already in the air. It was too late. So I landed on it with my front wheel and had a big front flip off this ledge and kind of went from pretty high up to flat on my back pretty quick."
Currently, Aaron is back in California with his physios and preparing to hopefully come back to race the rest of the season and attend World Champs later this month.
We wish Aaron all the best with his recovery and hope he will be back racing soon.
