GT-Teamrider Amir Kabbani broke his back two weeks ago and fortunately he will not be paralyzed and no surgery is needed. He left the hospital one week ago and is focused on his full recovery. Amir lay in his bed for the most of the day and is just able to walk a few minutes per day. But he already started his rehab. Amir, you crashed really hard two weeks ago and broke your 12th vertebra. How are you doing?
I am doing actually pretty ok considering my current situation. It`s not the pain or the injury itself what drives me a little crazy. It`s more the fact that I´ve ruined my season within 2 seconds once I crashed.How did you crash?
I was working on a 360°-Flip I just learned a few weeks ago. One went totally wrong and I got off it pretty weird and pretty much just landed on my head right to the bottom of the landing.How long do you think until you will back on your bike?
Well, doctors always make crazy date designations. They said it will take at least 5-6 months. But I am working on my rehab with some sport scientists and I hope it takes way less time.You have worked really hard for your next video "In The Woods 3" and the FMB Tour this past month. What were your plans for 2014?
That`s the worts part. I set my goals pretty high this year. So up to the moment that I injured myself I've already been working on a new course for my roundup for "In The Woods 3" for the past 7 months. Besides that I was feeling pretty good again on my bike to get some serious numbers again at the FMB. So yeah, timing could have not been worse!Video: Best Of Amir 2007 - 2013
