    I heard he broke his leg. But this is just a rumor I heard while walking down. No idea if its true or not.

    Video? My google-fu isn't up to snuff apparently.


    Edit: interwebs say broken tibia and fibia. :(

    Seen a vid (not on the web) that suggests tib+fib fractured.
    Not nice...

    Props to Soderstrom really great all around rider, shredding at whip off worlds, pumptrack and Joyride. Effortless style

    Pinkbike states that his tib and fib are certainly broken.

    Hope he heals up from this, he's a great rider to watch and has that effortless steeze on a bike that you can't fake or learn.

    Gnarly crash. Could have won it. He broke his tibia and fibula per Facebook.

    Bryn broke his collarbone, according to his Facebook page. Unlucky year for him.

    There is a footage on PB where you can see how he did brake his leg in close up... not going to post the link as I am no a fan on such carnage... look for it on your own, if you want ;)

    Agreed, there's no need to post that footage, especially not in slowmo. Or at least have a warning. Ruined the video for me, which was awesome till that point.

    Hope he makes a quick and full recovery. He's in good hands with Redbull I suppose.

    Ummm, it's not like someone died or got gravely injured and we need to avoid it out of respect......

    He broke his leg. I'd love it if I had footage of me breaking my collarbone and two ribs last year, or my wrist the year before. Hell, the dude's probably watched the slow mo several times already to both see what he did wrong, and the break. Guy jumps off cliffs and tricks massive jumps for a living and we're worried about seeing a non-life threatening injury the same way we view slow mo replays of guys getting ktfo in mma or boxing.

    except I choose not to watch MMA and boxing sh!t caus' I'm not interested in watching that. PB pretty much never posts footage of carnage. I'd have liked a warning at least. that's all.

    Then don't watch the old NWD series! Lots of crash segments there!

    I used to train MT and BJJ, so very used to seeing it up close and personal.
