iXS - Mark Matthews - Rebuilt

Last Fall, Mark Matthews took a season ending tumble at Rampage that left him with a shattered femur. Taking it as an opportunity to rebuild himself, Mark set out to prove his doctors wrong and get back on the bike before their projected timelines. Welcome back, Mark.

 Any brake in the femur is life changing. It really shows how much this guys loves to push himself and ride his bike because how he is coming back so strong and confident.

 Awesome return to riding! After busting my tibia/ fibula at the end of april, it is now such a mindf*ck getting back up to speed again on downhills and tech-riding...But I am just so stoked for being back riding dirt again, since july!

 Looks like you're all healed up. I snapped my distal tub/fib two years ago and it still isn't 100%. I still have hardware in there but considering getting it removed with hopes of regaining some agility and strength. Did u get your hardware taken out Mark? I know they r different injuries but wondering. I can ride well but surgeon says it would probably feel better to get it out. Going under the knife a little freaky though then healing. Injuries are shitty. Very impressive riding after only one year!

 Good to see you on your bike Mike! I feel for you. I went through nearly exactly this. I broke 3 vertebras, quit 1 season, then after 2 years now I can say that i have no fear and can ride 100% ... it sucks, but I wont stop riding, like you wont stop too! keep on! Smile
cheers
