Managing Director of F1 Academy Susie Wolff broadcast to the world that her husband and Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff broke his arm while downhill mountain biking on summer vacation in Austria.

Susie’s Instagram post made the family summer vacation seem thoroughly delightful. The post included a healthy mix of mountain-scapes, kids-doing-stuff-snapshots, go kart pics, and then ends with a pic of Toto with his left arm clad in a blue cast, his despondent chamois-suspenders hanging low, escorting a child who might be wondering what is for dinner.

Toto was wearing baggy mountain bike shorts over his chamois, leaving the world at large to wonder if his crash occurred while downhill mountain biking, or merely mountain biking downhill. PB Staff will post updates as they appear on social media.

 Is your feed really so crowded that you'd miss one of the other 5-10 posts from today?
Bummed that the Peaty's Tool Wrap announcement was pushed 1 post further down?
Is scrolling becoming so expensive that you cant justify looking at more than the top few posts?
I don't see the harm in it, it's fun to see when non-bike focused parts of my life/hobbies cross over with the bike parts. Especially when its as high profile of an individual riding mtb. Like I'd find it interesting if I found out Lebron James was a cyclist via a post about an injury.

 This coverage is worthy of Yahoo News, nothing better. "Famous person breaks arm, happens to have done it mountain biking, therefore it's worthy news on the world's premier mountain biking publication". lol

 Believe it or not, some of us who have been into mountain bike racing forever are interested in other types of racing as well... like F1. I follow a ton of F1 news and hadn't seen this reported anywhere yet, so I'm glad I saw it on PB.

 @scottrallye: I'm with you there, I'm a huge F1 fan myself (heck, I think I watch just as many F1 videos as I do MTB ones). Just seems a bit silly to report that here. Would've been similarly silly to report president Biden falling off his bike on here ONLY because the incident involved a bike.

Maybe you have to be in the billionaire’s club to get your Mtn bike related injuries posted on Pb?
If Elon eats it on a Mtn bike, I assume I’d see it here first!

 @scottrallye: maybe that is because it is totally unimportant even for F1 fans. I mean he is not a racer and as a manager can still totally work with an arm in a cast.

 As he is not one of my favorite F1 figures, I will say I like him a little more now that I see he is into MTB. I don't want to see anyone get hurt but not really Pinkbike news.
