Elite Australian mountain bike racer Garron Hutchison-Menzer is in stable condition after being airlifted from the Yellowmundie round of the Australian national mountain bike series last week. Hutchison-Menzer suffered a fracture to his T4 vertabrae, a fractured skull, and a broken finger in a crash during the cross country event.
Hutchison-Menzer is currently sporting a back brace from his waist to head, and is able to sit up. He is expected to make a full recovery, which will take about 3 months. Before the wreck, he was in good form, having won the Scott 24 hour race in Marathon pairs with his teammate Liam O'Dea.
