Quite the bummer news to get...


Giant Factory Off-Road Team rider is currently recovering from separated shoulder

NEWBURY PARK, CALIF. (August 22, 2012) -- Giant Factory Off-Road Team rider Danny Hart is currently recovering from shoulder surgery and will miss the 2012 World Championships and the final World Cup race of the season. The current Downhill World Champion dislocated his shoulder in a training crash in France on July 12, the day after the Air DH event at Crankworx Les Deux Alpes.

Following the crash, Danny immediately returned home to Great Britain, where he underwent surgery to repair torn ligaments in his left shoulder. He started physical therapy a few weeks ago and has already regained 70 percent range of motion. Danny’s recovery is right on track, but he won’t be ready for the final races of the 2012 season. He is now focused on building his strength for 2013.

Everyone in the Giant family wishes Danny a speedy recovery. We look forward to seeing him back stronger than ever in 2013 on his Giant Glory!
