Adolf Silva Shares Crash That Kept Him Out of Rampage

Freeride mountain biking is really just walking the finest of lines between success and utter failure. When athletes like Adolf Silva drop into a run, it’s really nothing more than an extremely calculated dance. Hitting a FEST Series-sized gap jump certainly comes with its own set of risks, especially when you overcook it by a mile.

This summer, Silva came in a little hot to a jump at Loosefest XL and overshot the landing by a few feet, resulting in this massive crash that broke his femur. The injury kept him out of competing in this October’s Rampage, where he was a crowd favorite for a podium spot. Heal up quick!
