Tristan Lemire was on roll at the end of the 2021 World Cup Downhill series with three finishes in the top five in the Junior Men's category, his first year on the race circuit. Over the holiday season, the young gun was training in Windrock, Tennessee when he suffered a savagely broken arm in two places during an unlucky crash where he got caught on something unexpectedly and was thrown from his bike.
We reached out to Tristan to check in and see how he was feeling and to hear more about his unfortunate freak accident.
We have no doubt that Tristan will bounce back from this injury and be back up to speed in no time, but wish him all the best on his recovery. His motivation to pick up where he left off in his prosperous breakout season shows with his positivity and focus on the tasks at hand before the first round of the 2022 World Cup season kicks off in Lourdes, France.
