Video: “Mark Matthews – Rebuilt”
Overcoming a shattered femur
Last Fall, Mark Matthews took a season ending fall at Red Bull Rampage that left him with a shattered femur. A crash like that can have riders swearing off riding for good. But not Mark. 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. A disciplined physical therapy regimen, proper diet and patience put him back in the saddle ahead of schedule in just six months. Mark now has a renewed appreciation for riding and a new motivation—to have fun.
Welcome back, Mark.
