Aussies Abroad: Cam Sinclair Part 2
On July 17th, Australia's Cam Sinclair suffered one of the worst crashes anyone has seen on a dirt bike while attempting to pull a double backflip during his run at the fourth round of the 2009 Red Bull X-Fighters in Madrid, Spain. In a medically induced coma for nearly a week, Sinclair knew he had a long road ahead of him, but nobody, including him, thought he'd be back on his bike and X Games ready just one-year later. Well he was and like the true champion he is, Sincs threw down a perfect double backflip, winning his first-ever X Games gold medal -- a comeback of epic proportions bigger than anything previously written in history books.
ESPN Australia documented Sinclair's triumphant comeback for a thirty-minute episode of their special feature program titled "Aussies Abroad." Last Friday we brought you Part 1 of the three-part episode and today we're back with Part 2, showcasing Sinclair's journey from a Madrid hospital to the Staples Center for X Games 16. Check it out and be on the lookout for Part 3 later this week.
