X Games: Jeremy Stenberg is latest crash victim at X Games 17
Stenberg was in the third of the four-lap race against Carey Hart when he lost control of his motorcycle as he was going up a ramp to perform a trick. Stenberg was separated from his cycle and fell from several feet in the air, slamming feet-first onto the dirt before crashing onto his side.
Paramedics tended to him for several minutes before he eventually waved to the crowd and was carried off on a stretcher.
An X Games spokeswoman said there is no official word on the nature of Stenberg’s injury.
Nate Adams, Ronnie Faisst and Mike Mason will join Hart in the semifinals.
