Bernard Kerr Out of World Cup with Injury

Jun 29, 2017
by Pinkbike Staff  
Bernard Kerr announced earlier today via the Pivot Cycles Facebook Page that he will not be racing in Vallnord thanks to an injury he sustained while racing the IXS DH at the Les Gets Crankworx stop a couple of weeks ago.


Given the severity of the crash, it's surprising to see Kerr in a sling and not worse.


Good luck and healing vibes from all of us here at Pinkbike. No doubt you will be back on your bike and landing 30ft jumps into stoppies in no time.

 Damn that's a brutal crash

You know that part in Rocky where he is supposed to break that guys thumbs for not paying? My theory is that the tree is actually part of the mafia but instead of breaking you're thumbs he breaks your collar bone. Its not like the tree wanted to do it but Tony Gazzo made him!

Heal up quick Bernard! Watching you ride is a real treat and the world cups wont be the same without you!

 Holy crap! And it looks like he got knocked out for a bit too. Heal up quick Bernard - the world needs your style!

 Yeah, the caption makes it sound like he just hurt his arm, but there's no doubt he had a concussion as well.

 He was definitely out. I never feel comfortable seeing the ragdoll roll following an initial hit that knocks someone out. Something about the vulnerability and lack of any preventative movement always worries me. Heal up well Bernard, that was a doozy of a hit!
