Cam McCaul broke his femur yesterday during the Crankworx Colorado Slopestyle Finals.  He had a banger run going, and during a front flip attempt out of the Whale's Tail he clipped his rear tire on the landing and crashed.  Cam almost immediately tried to get up, but then collapsed back to the ground pointing to his thigh.  When being carted off, he gave a big thumbs up to the crowd.

We've been told that It'll be six to eight weeks until he's healed enough to ride again.

From the sounds of it, he's in his usual good spirits this morning after having surgery to install a rod late into the night. Here are a few gems we found Cam's twitter:
