As the sunny autumn days get shorter and tales of first snowfalls start filtering back from the Alps it is easy to drift off and daydream about this years stash. But in between the excitement of triple bases and colour combos make sure you spare a thought for your noggin. A contentious issue with some, but a good helmet can save your life. Just ask Danny Toumarkine.
Last year, Danny was out riding with friends in Montana when he misjudged a kicker and fell horribly, fracturing his skull and suffering internal bleeding in the brain. He underwent four brain surgeries and was in a coma for two weeks, doctors even stored part of his skull in his abdomen! He was lucky to survive.
Moving Forward is a film documenting Danny’s injury and his long road to recovery. Due to be released in January 2012, it will mark a year after the accident happened.
