Video: Brook MacDonald & Loic Bruni's Big Crashes from the Val di Sole DH World Championships

Aug 28, 2021
by Ed Spratt  
The Val di Sole course is one of the steepest and wildest of the World Cup circuit, yesterday it took out both Brook MacDonald and Loic Bruni in some horrific crashes. We were relieved to hear they both walked away without serious injuries and are looking to be hitting the course for finals on Sunday.




bigquotesI’m built different don’t ask me how or why it’s a question I ask myself each time something like this happens to me. I put myself through hell and back and it only makes me stronger Brook MacDonald






bigquotesInsane action today on the hill… You can hear my reaction when I land on the only dirt patch there was: WTF!!! Got lucky today. Time to regroup and get my shit together. Loic Bruni

 So, so pleased they both walked away from these huge shunts. Brook is spot on when he says these guys are built differently. Best of luck to them both tomorrow.

 It's great that the medical team was quick to the attention of the rocks and boulders Brook Macdonald hit.

 That could have been so much worse for bruni. It was actually a great save to pick his front end up off the 2nd rock. If he had ejected out of the front door there, it would have been much worse #superbruni
