Wyn Masters, Bernard Kerr, Raphael Gutierrez & Goncalo Bandeira All Injured - Maribor World Cup DH 2021

Aug 13, 2021
by Alicia Leggett  

The brutal, dry Maribor track got a few more with Wyn Masters, Bernard Kerr, Raphael Gutierrez, and Goncalo Bandeira all injured at the hospital in Maribor.

Wyn posted a photo online showing himself in the hospital sitting between Raphael Gutierrez, whose arm was in a sling with what looked like a shoulder injury, and Goncalo Bandeira, whose wrist was wrapped and who later shared a photo of himself with a cast on his forearm. Wyn said he broke his fifth metacarpal. Wyn also shared a clip on his Instagram story of Bernard Kerr, whose forearm was in a cast, and he briefly mentioned that he hopes Loris Revelli is doing all right, leading us to believe that Revelli may also be injured. Judging from the post, Finn Iles was also at the hospital, but we sincerely hope he was just there to offer moral support.


bigquotesWell everything looked so good..kit bike everything was looking dialed thanks to @gtfactoryracing but then Friday the 13th just bit me real good, a mechanical failure completely out of my control lead to a big crash and a 5th metacarpal fracture, at least my hospital crew was a good one @goncaloccb @rafaelgutierrez6 @finniles @bernard_kerr always make the best from even the worst times! Hoping @lorikid27 and anyone else that went down today is doing alright! Guess I’m just on #WynTV duty now.Wyn Masters

We'll keep you updated when we learn whether Finn Iles and Loris Revelli are injured and which riders actually are able to race this weekend. We wish these riders all the best as they recover.

 I'm not saying there is a time to race the Grimdoughnut... But this might be the time. Get Levy in some spanx and ship him out to Maribor. Brian this could be his big shot.

 So, what will he use for a microphone this time around? An amputated limb, a syringe, a crutch? There is so much typical stuff to be found at hospitals and they all make for a good working microphone.

 @vinay: amputated limbs are typical?

 @danielfloyd: Well, if you come across these more often outside an hospital than they can be found inside an hospital there surely must be something wrong. Not sure what happens with them usually. Maybe they'll be used for research and education (but then usually stay within the academic hospital) or they'll be incinerated. I doubt they'll be brought somewhere else outside the hospital.

 I guess the local docs will be pre-ordering that new Yeti E-bike.
  • 8 0
 Those 5digit prices are a bit high for local doctors.. most of my MTB colleagues ride mostly "average Joe's" bikes..

 Paying Yeti E-bike money for health care is more of a USA thing. Medics getting payed Yeti E-bike money is also a more of a USA thing.
  • 9 0
 I like your joke but I think it’s mostly only applicable to doctors in America
  • 6 3
 @c-radicallis: I can ASSURE you that USA Medic's DO NOT get paid Yeti E-bike, let alone Yeti money. If you see a medic riding a Yeti, we either: stole it, borrowed it, inherited it, or put it on credit. In the off chance that it is bought and paid for, it's because we all have to work 3 jobs to survive, and we've saved up for 5 years and the bike is now only 10 years old.

 "all injured at the hospital" that's pretty ironic you'd think they'd have been injured at the dh track. Why were they even at the hospital?

 Looking forward to the ER room track walk. The ward section looks harsh AF.

 This reminds me of the Kamikaze/Cali Endure four or five years ago. The organizers had the beginner and sport classes going down tracks like Bullitt, Follow Me, Skidmarks etc.. the hospital was full before lunch. Lots of arms, collar bones, concussions.

To be fair, I do fully believe racing should push riders to their limit and be a big challenge to most. However. I think Bullitt and Follow Me are too much for beginners.

Healing vibes out to all the racers laid up today!

 Track must be too hard. They should slow add more tech so the riders can’t ride as fast.
