In case you missed this last week on our Biz site:
Last week, at the Oi! Megarampa contest in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Mega Ramp pioneer Danny Way suffered a fall that left him with two broken vertebrae.
The incident took place in practice, and Way was out of the hospital by Thursday, November 20.
A Brazilian news source quoted contest winner Bob Burnquist as saying: “We know the risk to this sport. Danny knows it too. I was very much saddened because I wanted to see him on the ramp, on Sunday.”
While he will make a full recovery, doctors say Way will be sidelined for up to 6 months—which could be anywhere from 3-4 months in Danny Way time.
No word on whether this will delay the upcoming Plan B video, scheduled for 2009.
