Down Time for Guettler
Posted 08/17/2010 05:30:00 by i am vans
Vans BMX Team rider Ryan Guettler was probably in the best shape of his life, super focused and killing it pre-season. Then, at the first Dew Tour stop in Chicago a month ago, he went over the bars and drove his shoulder into the ground. Ryan suffered immense pain and dislocation almost every run he took but decided to still competed in the X Games and at the H.B contest, although not riding anywhere near the level he knows best. Finally, after trying to ride the Dew Tour Stop 2 in Portland this past weekend, he decided to get X-rays and a M.R.I and will be going under the knife this week to repair the damage. Ryan is also getting his right shoulder repaired in a month's time, after the left one has had some time to heal. These shoulder surgeries will keep him off the bike 2-3 months, so he intends to practice his photo and video skills in the off time. Get well soon Ryan!
