Just over a year ago at the Mont Sainte Anne World Champs, Brook MacDonald suffered a potentially career-ending crash. Left on the hillside for 5 hours before being evacuated, he describes it as the worst day of his life
but he was determined to not let the crash stop him and has made an amazing recovery
. He'll be kitting up and heading up the mountain for the first downhill training session this afternoon before taking the start line again on Sunday for a crack at the Rainbow Jersey.
To celebrate his incredible return to racing, Monraker created him a pair of custom crutches as a symbol of their support following his inspiring recovery. Of course, while it's hoped that he won’t ever need to test ride this custom piece of kit, the crutches do come with a whole host of enhancements compared to the stock model he used during his rehabilitation. The handles feature Renthal double lock-on grips for better control in technical conditions, the long, slack, and low Forwalk Geometry adds some much-needed stability and the stanchions are even Kashima coated.
The MS Mondraker team are running aluminium frames now and that includes display cases for crutches too.
