Brook MacDonald is no stranger to speed on a bike. To be at the levels of world cup downhill racing requires you to ride on the very edge of your comfort level most of the time. If you are pinned like this and make a mistake, it can mean a big crash with even bigger consequences. Unfortunately Brooke suffered one of these high speed crashes during the world cup championships this year and was sidelined with injury.
This video was originally supposed to release in early September but after the crash at Worlds, myself, Shimano and the crew at Anthill Films decided that we should postpone it until I knew more about my injury. I’m now happy to say I’m doing great in my rehabilitation and feeling stronger every day. I’ve been blessed with immeasurable support from fans around the world, the mountain bike community, my friends, my family and my girlfriend Lucy. So many people have sent me messages and well wishes, it really has gotten me inspired to come back to downhill racing sooner and stronger. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. — Brook (Bulldog) MacDonald
