Anyone who pushes the limits in gravity sports knows it’s not if you fall, it’s when you fall — and what happens next.
Pierre Hourticq went through those steps a year ago when a nasty spill on skis snapped a cruciate ligament in his knee. Hourticq underwent surgery, then sat sidelined and slowly rehabilitated the damaged joint.
“Even though it is a common injury among skiers, rehabilitation is long and painful. The impact on the mindset is huge, and the doubts that it engenders are enormous,” he explains in Pedal 2 Pow, episode one (auto-translated).
