Metal Mulishaâ€™s Robbie Adelberg has been competing as much as possible after this yearâ€™s X Games 16, which was held in Los Angeles; CA. From Red Bull X Fighters, the 8th annual ASA Championship and many more, Rob came to a temporary painful halt last week at Alli Sports Dew Tour, Salt Lake City, Utah.
During the Dew Tour event Rob was riding extremely well and Twitch, Potter, Faisst, Taka, and Adelberg all eliminated their opponent in the first round, allowing them to advance to the second round. As Rob geared up and started his next run, he hit neutral as he was lined up on the dirt double out of the double, double section. With his momentum and speed target at the lip, Rob was unable to slow down in time and had to eject off of his bike. He was carted off and head to the hospital immediately to be evaluated.
Rob was struck with a long list of injuries, which include his tib and fib on right leg, a shattered right ankle, a broken left ankle and broken right wrist. So far his first surgery has been a success but has many more still in line. Get well soon Robbie and best wishes to you and your recovery!
