Martyn Ashton, the guy who brought smiles to every one’s faces with his two wheeled antics, has suffered a serious injury while performing at a trails demo earlier this month. He fell backwards off a three meter high bar and the impact damaged his spine, dislocating his T9 and T10 vertebrae.

The initial prognosis is not positive, according to the press release sent by Shift Active Media on his behalf, Martyn has currently lost feeling below the point of injury. The current medical plan is for the trials star to undergo six weeks of complete bed rest. At which point, doctors will know more about the extent of the injuries and he can begin the long road to rehabilitation.

You can follow his progress and share words of encouragement via his twitter account. From everyone here at BikeRumor, we wish Martyn the very best.
