Reece Wilson

Shoulder separation

In 15 September 2018, Reece Wilson, one of Scotland’s top mountain bike racers, suffered a shoulder separation after crashing at Red Bull Hardline, an invitation-only event in Wales. Rather than an injury caused by repetition, this was exactly the sort of blunt trauma injury that skiers, cyclists and rugby players are prone to suffer. However, within a week the Borderer had been operated on, with Professor Mackay inserting an InternalBrace to stabilise the shoulder. Reece was quickly into the recovery/rehab stage, and almost immediately back training in the gym with a view to being competing within three months.

We will be following Reece's progress in 2019 and watch out for his video story - coming soon
