Video: Rebuilt For Mountain Biking

Last year, professional mountain bike rider Mark Matthews crashed during a competition, breaking his femur in the process. Doctors told him it would take months for him to heal, and that he shouldn’t even consider riding again for at least year. That wasn’t good enough for Mark, who set out to prove the doctors wrong. As a result of training hard, rehabbing diligently, and watching his diet, he was back on the bike well ahead of schedule. The video below shares a bit of that story, but mostly it is a celebration of returning to the trails after being away for too long.
