There’s no two ways about it, if you’re a regular in the world of downhill mountain biking, you’re going to have a nasty tumble at some point.

Even the best in the world are prone to this unfortunate fact of life – probably even moreso given the lengths to which they push themselves on some of the most challenging terrain the world has to offer.
