Mark Matthews – Rebuilt

Posted by Caleb Smith on Tuesday August 12 2014

Last Fall, Mark Matthews took a season ending tumble at 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 exercise and physio regimen, proper diet and patience put him back in the saddle ahead of schedule in just 6 months. Mark now has a renewed appreciation for riding and a new motivation; to have fun.
