Video: Dan Atherton´s Broken Neck

Episode 7 of The Atherton Project is available and it is an absolute must watch. This is the episode where Dan breaks his C1 vertebrae in four places during a dirt jumping session, basically the worst injury that you can sustain. Dan is lucky to be alive and is going to be in his “halo” until October before starting his journey towards a full recovery with the aim of getting back on his bike be the end of the year. What the video doesn´t show is that Dan apparently asked Gee to drag him home on a plank of wood! Thankfully Gee decided that an ambulance was a better bet. Dan is an absolute legend and we wish him the fastest possible recovery.
