As mountain bikers, we all subject ourselves to the risk of injury every time we ride. Some, like broken bones, are visible and we can clearly see the steps needed to recover. Others, such as concussion, are less tangible and can result in greater problems if left unnoticed or untreated.

In this video, Neil chats to EWS racer Bex Baraona about her experiences with head injuries at the following recovery period, and Ric McLaughlin of the Enduro World Series gives us a quick rundown of injury statistics in the race series. The EWS as an organising body also realise a need to increase awareness around the subject and have published a Pocket-Guide to Concussions. This guide extensively lists the symptoms of concussion, to help riders make an educated call on what the best decision based on the observation of themselves or another rider. How do you call it with a head injury? Should you be racing, training and riding exclusively in a full-face helmet if you're trying to ride a trail as fast as you can? How is it best to return to riding after a head injury? Neil and the EWS have got the information you need!
