Crash Update with Griz 33

Our main man, Sean "Griz" McClendon took a big digger at National Champs, shattering his pelvis and his collarbone. We caught up with him at the hospital in Denver yesterday to see how he's doing. Give him love in the comments and get him back to Pine Life mode asap. He goes in for surgery today (Tuesday), so wish him well. Heal up big man!

    heal up my mas. I cut my spinal cord in 3 places and dislocated 3 vertebrae and was told by 2 doctors I should not be able to walk. I am walking and flowing on my bike like it was just a bad dream. you'll get better so just don't loose faith in your body's ability to heal!

    Brutal. Can't believe how many people got busted up this weekend. Griz I snapped a femur and broke my pelvis with a big acetabular fracture (hip socket) skiing, and once they bolted me back together I was riding a bike on the road within 2 months and on trail within 3 months. Get back on it!

    Brutal - heal fast! Seems like there's been all kinds of folks going down hard this year in general. Seriously, more than what I'm used to seeing. It's just he nature of the beast and eventually that beast must feed. I'll be sure to throw some runs down at the NW Cup this weekend for you, as well as all the other downed riders.

    Everybody's letting it hang!!

    Everyone in the NW Cup and Fluidride Cups sends 'The Griz' nothing but healing vibes! But yeah- I'll clip my fingernails super close just to make you feel better! ODI-Intense is still one of my favorite teams- its all character!

    You'll be back gyrating your pelvis like Elvis in no time! Heal up buddy! A few of us watched the latest Allout movie before the race, you inspired me to get a little stylie on the doubles!
