In the same way that mountain biking was rocked with Martyn Ashton’s life changing injury in 2013, 10 months ago the BMX world was left reeling too. Scotty Cranmer was working on a joint project for Monster Energy and his YouTube channel when an accident left him with a broken neck and 3 bleeds on his brain. Unbelievably though Scotty’s post on his YouTube channel yesterday showed him back on his BMX at a skatepark!
I’ve posted this under aspirational riding as, from the injuries he sustained, for Scotty to be sitting up on his own is amazing. For him to be riding a BMX at a skatepark in just 10 months is nothing short of phenomenal. In the clip he talks about how he set himself goals and then worked tirelessly to achieve them. It’s that kind of dedication that made him the pro he was and has got him to where he is now. Here’s hoping his progress continues for a long time to come.
If you’re going to take the time to practice, practice like the elite.
