Following a training accident in September which resulted in three fractured vertebrae, Matti Lehikoinen is back on the bike. The Finnish downhill racer's motivation was helped by a new Intense Spider XVP bike he received just in time for Christmas from MS-Intense Factory- Racing.

Lehikoinen, who is stoked to be riding again, has just started preparing for the upcoming downhill World Cup season. At the end of January, he will take a trip to Temecula, California, to test out his new downhill bike.
