Fabio Wibmer has posted on Instagram that he has broken his foot while riding motocross.

Wibmer, who passed 5 million YouTube subscribers this year, is best for known for his trials and urban freeride trickery but he actually started out as a motocross rider. He rode motorbikes for around 12 years and has been a sponsored rider for KTM since February this year. Wibmer was riding with some of his filming crew and Nico Vink when the accident took place. We don't know exactly what happened but Wibmer has been left with a broken foot and has said he may need surgery.

bigquotesTook a bit of a tumble rippin' the MX bike. Foot is broken and probably needs surgery but we'll be back soon. Thanks to the boys for helping me out!Fabio Wibmer

We hope Fabio has a quick recovery and hope to see him back on our screens soon.

 Think he's already collaborating with the hospital for a signature edition of that cast.

 I think it's a trick, to announce his next video where he will be stomping insane stuff riding the whole time 'one leg no footer'

 I also broke my foot riding, or rather failing to ride, motocross. Finally a pro trick on a two wheeled vehicle I can perform.

 Isn't this only his third broken bone in his career? That's mighty impressive considering what he does for a living.

 He's an athlete, he's not gonna be jumping off buildings for his whole life and he's doing what he can to make some money while he can. Wouldn't you do the same?
