Two-time Gravity Games Champion and X-Games Champion Stephan Murray was very severely injured during a crash at the Dew Tour Dirt Jump Event. The British rider suffered major damage to his C3, 4 and 5 vertebra and was in critical condition in a Baltimore-area hospital. He was scheduled to be transferred to a Denver facility to begin rehabilitation.
Murray lives in Southern California with his wife and two young children. Faced with his new life-altering condition, the BMX rider will benefit from several fundraising efforts taking place to support him. These include an eBay auction, the collection of direct contributions to the Stephan Murray Fund, and a bike jam in Lake Perris, California, held in early July.
