Motocross star inspires pupils to check in

Australian freestyle motocross rider Cam Sinclair tore up the halls of Devon Meadows Primary School as part of R U OK? Day last week.

On Thursday 14 September, the school marked the day with a special event with dance, smiles and a special visit from the local motocross star.

After injuring himself while practicing for a double backflip in June 2008 and unable to compete until September 2008, Sinclair landed the first double backflip in a freestyle motorcross run at the third event of the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour 2009.

Sinclair was seriously injured in Madrid in July 2009 when he under rotated a double back flip.

He suffered a broken shoulder, broken cheek bone, a ruptured liver and was knocked unconscious, leaving him in a critical condition and fighting for his life.

After retraining himself using therapy to walk and ride again, Sinclair is back competing, and he successfully completed the double back flip again at X Games XVI in 2010, winning his first X Games gold medal in Moto X Best Trick.

R U OK? Day aimed to inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and start a conversation with those in their world who may be struggling with life and ask them if they are okay, listen, encourage action and continue to check in.
