Fabio Wibmer broke his foot while riding motocross in November of 2020 and after a short while back on the bike, he's sidelined once again. This time with torn ligaments in his shoulder and a broken ankle. Just last week, he posted that he finally felt good enough post-injury to flip again, but now it sounds like he'll have to take some more time off the bike.

I had a rough crash on the mountainbike - torn ligaments in my shoulder and broken ankle but luckily it should heal up quite fast.—Fabio Wibmer
We can't wait for Fabio to get back to his usual antics and wish him the best of luck with his recovery.
Grade 3 AC 10 years ago. Hook plate was used to fix it, and a good infection in the wound. To this day it is far from perfect, and any strenght related excersise with narrow grip (both push and pull) are impossible.
But the pain of the injury itself... oh boy, that shattered bone digging in your flesh from the inside is slightly worse lol
Said so, I'd take the collarbone 100%. One year after the AC and I can't still sleep 'recklessly'.
Stay positive, you'll get fine.
AC grade 5 here fixed with tight rope and a wire. Surgery was 5 weeks ago and i feelin really good. 12 weeks in total and i will ride again, unfortunately the season is almost over then
Hmmm, yeah... I see pain and suffering 20 years from now.
Seriously, though... as a Red Bull athlete he may receive top tier medical care and rehab, but his joints won't be happy down the road.
