Danny Hart Sidelined With Injury For 2012 World Championship

Not the news any of us wanted to hear, but unfortunately Giant Factory Off-Road Team rider Danny Hart is currently recovering from shoulder surgery. Danny will miss the 2012 World Championships and the final World Cup race for the season. The current Downhill World Champion dislocated his shoulder in a practice run at the Air DH event, at Crankworx Les Deux Alpes on July 12.

Following the crash, Danny immediately flew home to Great Britain, where he underwent surgery to repair the torn ligaments he sustained in his left shoulder. He started physical therapy a few weeks ago and has already gained 70% range of motion. Danny's recovery was looking promising and he is recovering quickly, but unfortunately not quick enough to be 100% fit for the World's in Leogang on September 2. He is now refocusing on his 2013 season.

Everyone at Extreme wishes him the best and to come back strong for the 2013 season.

    This is fantastic riding and I can't get enough of the 2 announcers. Who are they? It's too bad they cut the last line of their description. It had me rolling on the ground laughing!!!

    Since it is already on the internet, it is a wise move to use it to attract people to the site. Which in turn will mean more views, which in turn will increase the chances for Freecaster to be around next year. I paid, and I dont mind that they are postin
