Mike Metzger, the Godfather of FMX and creator of MOBFMX, is also an artist who not only paints the canvas but the air with his signature, go for it style. That style has gotten him in trouble many times and he has never abandoned it. This weekend was nodifferent.
Apparently Mike was hosting a big backyard BBQ bash at his home and compound with many of his friends and riding buddies. While intial reports suggest he jumped ona different bike than usual and crashed hard. Injuries include some broken vertebrae,both collarbones and a lacerated kidney. He was stable up until this morning when it was reported this morning on www.freestylemtx.comforums by owner Chuck Carrothers that Mike has begun bleeding from his liver. More info as we get it here. In the meantime, keep Mike in your thoughts and prayers.
