Paul Basagoitia Shatters T12: Undergoes 9-Hour Surgery

Next Up

We enjoyed the event, we cheered and we celebrated our love for mountain biking - now we need to soberly and correctly deal with the fallout. Paul Basagoitia's crash resulted in him shattering his T12 vertebrae and undergoing 9 hours of surgery. His was the one coming after hitting what, I think, was one of the biggest step-downs in Rampage history.

He's in tough shape. I don't have much info other than Cam Zink's gram. But we'll keep you posted. Cover photo credit to Sterling Lorence Pinkbike. Let's hope we see Paul like that again.
