Travis Patrana at X Games 17 Red Bull Media House North America, Inc.

We don’t often do injury reports but it seems as though Action Sports and injuries go together like Red Bull and Vodka -- and this year is no different than any past years. No matter how much an athlete prepares for these competitions, accidents are bound to happen. From the MegaRamp to the Dirt Track, we’ve had some of the best athletes in Action Sports go down.

Chad Kagy - BMX Big Air: Chad took a 45-foot fall and broke his right femur.

Travis Pastrana - Moto X Best Trick: While trying to do a “corked 720,” Travis crashed and broke his right ankle and foot.

Ashley Fiolek - Moto X Racing Women: Ashley crashed during practice and was knocked unconscious. She was unconscious long enough for doctors to determine that she should not compete.

Curren Caples -Skateboard Park: Curren went down during practice and sustained a minor concussion along with a big knot above his eye.

Corey Bohan - BMX Freestyle Park:Corey hurt his wrist during eliminations. No breaks or fractures but enough pain to keep him from competing.
