Vaea Verbeeck put together a huge line at Red Bull Formation. After successfully riding it in parts, the Canadian crashed hard on a massive left hip jump, ending her weekend in Utah.

Now, the two-time Crankworx Queen is sharing footage of the heavy slam, and an update on how her recovery is going.

The Canadian has a lateral meniscus tear, and white zone tear to the ACL. The MCL is faring better, improving odds that Verbeeck’s season can continue.

My MCL is good therefore I may be able to function just fine in very little time even without an ACL,” Verbeeck shared, along with the video of her crash. “Hoping for a chill recovery this week, and then if my knee functions well without an ACL we’re on!”
