Amaury Pierron qualifies with a broken vertebra and launches accusations

Chilling fitting of Pierron, who qualified to Lenzerheide with a broken C5 vertebra during free practice. She really risked a lot. And he throws accusations about security.

Hey guys, how long. But such a shitty start to the season is hard to put into words. A huge disappointment. Honestly, it wasn't a serious crash, but I had the misfortune to break my C5 vertebra. Bad luck landing headfirst into a stump and rock right next to the runway. What should it be safe? – Amaury Pierron

Our sport is growing it seems. More money (I don't know for whom), more TV, more racing and faster tracks.
But no more security. Nor is a doctor who works for the organization, which means that no one is able to forbid a biker from racing. Because pain won't stop a biker. Nothing will stop a biker except a doctor.

I was lucky that my unstable fracture held up to qualify, and that I didn't feel able to race on Sunday. So we went to the hospital for more information and found this broken vertebra which was quite a shock.

The crash was my fault, but could it have been avoided with a clean zone B perhaps? We'll never know… Anyway the result is what it is, and I'm demotivated to the max in not racing and defending my title. I am so sorry to everyone involved in my dream hunt. I promise you that I will be back on the bike as soon as possible. It's just another cloud in my life, but it will pass and I'll be back – Amaury Pierron

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
