Pain vs Reward: Hand and arm injuries in MTB - Episode 3

In today’s episode of Pain vs Reward, we focus on hand and arm injuries in mountain biking.

Riding a mountain bike is not easy. When a mountain biker falls, the arms and hands are the first line of defence in cushioning the body from impact. This leads to a high number of injuries in those areas, and for a pro MTB rider, that can mean the difficult choice to end a season early.

What is Pain vs Reward? With competition and progression pushing the sport of downhill mountain biking forward at lightning speed, the risks riders face are also changing rapidly. Take a look at the most common injuries in mountain biking and how the pros deal with the harshest slams.
