Last Fall, Mark Matthews took a season ending tumble at Rampage that left him with a shattered femur. A crash like that can have riders swearing off riding for good, but not Mark. Taking it as an opportunity to rebuild himself, Mark set out to prove his doctors wrong and get back on the bike before their projected timelines. A disciplined exercise and physio regimen, proper diet and patience put him back in the saddle ahead of schedule in just 6 months. Mark now has a renewed appreciation for riding and a new motivation; to have fun.
Welcome back, Mark.

It was a dream come true to sign with @ixssports in 2014. They were my first paid sponsorship, and when I signed with them I was recovering from a major leg injury. Without their support, things might look way different for me today. The last 5 years have been life-changing in terms of professional and personal growth. I will no longer be continuing my partnership with @ixssports but I’m stoked to see what 2019 brings! Thanks to the brands who continue to support me and all of you who follow along. I’m very grateful. 🙏 @russell_holliday 📷 Portrait by @mountainmancole
