Rachel Atherton reported the following on her Facebook page about Taylor Vernon's status after his big crash during the Air Downhill at Crankworx Les 2 Alpes yesterday.

"For all those asking what happened: Our little Brother Taylor took a big crash yesterday in the DH at Crankworx Europe, Les Deux Alpes, and the scans showed damaged some vertebrae. He's having surgery on his back today and then he can travel home in a few days to see the specialists.
Send him your high fives and kisses for his recovery...he has been an amazing teammate this season and he is our brother for life now!"

Taylor, everyone at Vital is wishing the best during your surgery and recovery. Heal up and come back stronger!
