Lance McDermott: Back from Injury. Lance McDermott: Back from Injury.
It's been 1 year since Lance McDermott last showed off his skills in a contest. A broken leg sustained in a BMX crash June 2009 (See it in the video), followed by a major failure in his first operation has had Lance sitting on the sideline watching on so far in 2010. Despite signing a deal for the newly revitalized UK brand Saracen in 2010 it is only now he is getting his leg back over a bike and pushing towards the standard of riding we all know him for. A few weeks ago I headed to meet Lance, shoot some video and see him as he pushes back towards full fitness in an attempt to be able to compete at Crankworx in a few weeks.
