Jesse Melamed Injures Hand In Practice, Unlikely To Race EWS Whistler

Aug 11, 2018
by Pinkbike Staff  
Local favorite and runner up in 2016. Jesse Melamed is definitely going to be one of the guys to beat here on Sunday.

Jesse Melamed, hometown hero and last year's winner of EWS Whistler, took a big slam in practice today on Stage 1 (Micro Climate). One of the favourites to win tomorrow, he reportedly has a spiral fracture of the third metacarpal in his right hand and is unlikely to take the start line. Terrible news for the Rocky Mountain Race Face team - all 3 have now battled hand injuries this year.

More info as we get it.

 I’d loan you my right hand, Jesse, but I’m newly single and probably need it just as bad as you do! Heal up quick, brotha

 Get him some of that patented Canadian/Rocky-RF recovery program, eh? Ice bath and maple syrup, was it?

Swift recovery!

 True bummer. He would have bodied that course for sure. Dude's still got a long career ahead of him thankfully, easily one of the most stylish riders out there.
