Damn hope she comes through the other side okay.

Outside should surely have good insurance to cover their employees who participate in these sports as part of work duties, yeah?

Her friend says in the blurb that she has good insurance and the fundraiser is to make her recovery easier.

Fuck….. she’s still out?

LOC is generally bad news for concussions.
not always, I have been knocked out twice. Once for 3 days (head on with a car) and once for 5 hours ( solo mtb OTB and off a cliff) and aside for some psych issues from waking up in the hospital after 3 days and not being able to move from the neck down. I physically recovered. She may be in a medically induced coma to promote healing.

I've knocked myself out with a grade 3 concussion twice now. Both times were on bicycles. Once with a helmet on (saved my life I think) and once without a helmet. I recovered from both, had amnesia in the short term. When I knocked myself out in the skatepark I was the only person around. When I woke up there was a bunch of kids standing around me with their mouths open. I think they thought I was dead.

I hope she recovers fully! Brain injuries are seriously no good.

Damn, that sucks. I hope she can fully recover rapidly.

IMO, she is one of the most talented Mtb reviewers/communicators.
