Reece Wilson skimming trees on his way to a steady run into the top 10.

Reece Wilson has announced today that he will not be competing in finals after crashing off a drop in practice yesterday. Luckily nothing is broken and he walks away with just a few stitches but Wilson has made the sensible decision to sit out of today's racing after hitting his head badly.


bigquotesI guess this weekend just wasn’t meant to be for me. Had a pretty big crash yesterday off a drop, super lucky to only have some stitches and nothing broken. Unfortunately, I hit my head pretty bad. It’s given me some weakness in my left arm and a pretty good headache so I’ll definitely be sitting out this weekend and resting up. Appreciate everyone’s kind messages as always and I’ll be back soon! Reece Wilson

We're wishing Reece all the best with his recovery and we hope to see him back on the bike soon.

 This was the same spot Bulldog crashed at?

Hope both dudes make a full and fast recovery.

 Get well soon! Hoping you have no lasting effects and can be back to competing and doing what you love sooner rather than later.

 Amazing how concussions do not show. I was in medical with an XC athlete who was getting stitches at the same time and the two of them were joking and laughing away.

Best of luck Reese.
