Connor Fields has had a long journey over the past 7 months, as he is now back on track after a crash last year at the world championships, was actually somewhat a blessing in disguise.
Connor’s knee injury suffered by his crash created bone fragments that wound up floating behind his kneecap and hindering him the end of the 2010 season. When he finally went to have it all checked out at the Dr in December, it was diagnosed that he also had a slight growth irregularity, causing pain in his knee and preventing certain muscle expansion. Surgery was the prescription for him, and after a grueling 4 months of recovery, Connor is back on his bike and ready to get back on the race circuit.
He is currently training at the USA Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA with the Team USA staff and trainers, with the main goal of helping him to get back to where he was before the injury and beyond.
Connors heads off to race his first Pro race on the ABA National tour next weekend in Salt lake City, Utah and then will be back at the USA OTC getting ready for the World Championships.
Connor’s tenacity through the entire event and his positive attitude have kept him looking at his goals and moving forward. With his new bike, team, and attitude, Connor will be a rider to content with on the BMX World Tour.
