Here’s a crazy clip that passed us by last weekend from the early rounds of the Crankworx Les Gets speed and style.
In the round of 32 (that was on before the live broadcast) Kyle Strait lined up against another rider in what he probably expected would be an easy win. On the first trick jump, they both go for straight backflips but the other rider bails directly into Strait, causing them both to go down.
Strait said: “Unfortunately in the first round of speed and style finals I was taken out mid flip and went down really hard. Rolled my ankle pretty good and messed my knee up as well. I was not able to get back into the event and will be missing pump track as well. Hoping that it is just a sprain and to be back on the bike for Innsbruck. Shit luck but going for the best on this one.”
Healing vibes to Strait and hopefully we see him back in action this weekend!
