Following a Practice Crash in Fresno, CA.
R2R opens fundraising campaign for @brandonhartranft_ after suffering severe injuries.
On Tuesday, November 29, professional Motocross/Supercross rider Brandon Hartranft suffered a substantial crash at a test track in Fresno, CA, while preparing for the upcoming AMA Monster Energy Supercross Championship season. Brandon was immediately transported to a nearby hospital, where he successfully underwent surgery on Wednesday morning to repair the severe damage to his spine.
The H.E.P. Motorsports Suzuki Factory team rider is now in stable condition with movement and feeling throughout his body. With the extensive list of fractures and damage sustained to his spine, Brandon will have an extended stay in the hospital and a lengthy rehabilitation recovery ahead. His medical bills are anticipated to be substantial, even after his insurance is applied; therefore, the Road 2 Recovery Foundation has opened a fundraising campaign to assist with Brandon’s medical bills. If you are able, please donate to Brandon’s R2R Fund here. Road 2 Recovery – Brandon Hartranft

Hey everyone. I want to say thank you to all of you who has reached out and help me on my @road2recovery. You all mean so much to me and it’s making my life better
Tuesday I was training and did this rhythm. It was a 3-3-3-on off. Well the middle of the 3 triple my bike cut out and I landed head first. Which caused L1-L2 endplate fractures.
L3-L4 transverse process fractures.
L1-L3 spinous process fractures.
Left hip dislocation.
Right rib fractures 5-7.
Right scapular fracture.
Right hemothorax with chest tube placement.
So right now we’re just trying to get healthy and get back standing on my feet. I’m in pain but no pain no gain!!So thank you everyone so much again I will be giving you guys updates
On to the next chapter of this recovery 💪🏼
8 days of stress, tears, fear, and no sleep we are finally headed to a rehab where he will spend the next 2-3 weeks. We are so thankful that @road2recovery @angel_medflight was able to fly us private to make this painless and easy as possible. This was by far the hardest 8 days of my life seeing the man I love so defenseless & in so much pain. If there is anyone that will come out on top from this it’s “B” and I will continue to be his biggest cheerleader every step of the way! With that being said I want to say thank you to everyone who has reached out to us & his family during this difficult time it does not go unnoticed and it means the world to us! Please continue to pray for Brandon🏼🙏🏼
