Myriam Nicole Reveals She Has Been Struggling with Concussion Symptoms Since the Lourdes DH World Cup
@BaeckerX1: It was obvious that I rang my bell pretty good, anyone could have seen that. I couldn't recall the crash or what led up to it. I called my wife to come and take me to the ER, forgot I called her and then called her again and repeated everything. She was like - I know, you just called and told me, I'm on my way. I was foggy, sensitive to light, and very anxious. The funny thing is that it was a whiplash concussion, the helmet looked fine. Looking at the GoPro after, I lost the front on a high speed flat corner and fell on my right side at probably 30 mph. Everything except my brain was fine from the crash. It took a few months to return to normal and I was even more useless at work for weeks. The brain is nothing to mess around with.

Myriam Nicole Reveals She Has Been Struggling with Concussion Symptoms Since the Lourdes DH World Cup
@Willikers: Please set it up... I am happy to share my views with Max on this and I'm sure he would do it differently if the situation occurs again, he seems like a great guy that runs his teams like a family. I am willing to bet there are new internal rules within the team should a concussion occur in the future for any of his riders.

Myriam Nicole Reveals She Has Been Struggling with Concussion Symptoms Since the Lourdes DH World Cup
@johniep: Agree to disagree here. I was in the exact same position a few years ago. I crashed in practice and got a concussion, went to the ER, was told by the doctor that I should not race the next day, I was worried about series points and ended up racing anyway. Like her, I didn't crash in the race but did suffer concussion symptoms for weeks/months after. I am a grown man with a family, who is responsible for my own decisions. I regret doing what I did and wish I had listened to the doctor as it could have been very bad if I had crashed again. Brain injuries are nothing to mess around with and I feel that it is the team and event's responsibility to put riders first and protect them from doing what I and Myriam did. It is great to see other riders bucking the trend and pulling out of races because of concussions like Tahnee did recently. She is setting a good example here but I will still root for Myriam first as I think she is awesome...

@johniep: Because, when you have a concussion, you are not capable of making good decisions on your own. This is the whole point. The team and the event organizers need to step in and protect the rider. Don't get me wrong, I love Myriam and have been routing for her as long as I can remember but this was the wrong decision - full stop.

I remember thinking "why is she being allowed to race when the clearly described a brain injury from her practice crash". I got a concussion a few years ago and it took several months to recover from.

"X2 has a Fox tune inside that has been tuned by the team at Fox." Great bit of writing there...
