Griz DH Crash! 19

This past weekend at the U.S. National Championships in Sol Vista, CO team rider Sean “Griz” McClendon had a huge crash in his DH race run. Griz was Life Flighted to Saint Anthony’s Hospital in Denver where we would find out he had broken his left Collarbone, Shattered both sides of his pelvis, and dislocated his right hip. He’ll go under the knife a total of 4 times to have his pelvic bones pinned back together. Everybody send good healing vibes and wish Griz the best through this rough time in his life. GET WELL SOON, WE LOVE YOU!!!
