Matt Brammeier injured in high-speed crash at Utah

The MTN-Qhubeka rider apparently hit a service car on a high-speed descent and was taken to hospital, where he was listed in stable condition

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

Matt Brammeier (MTN-Qhubeka) was hospitalized on Saturday after a high-speed crash during stage 6 of the Tour of Utah.

The Irishman hit a service car while chasing back to the peloton on the descent from Guardsman Pass in Big Cottonwood Canyon, according to a team press release.


He was taken by ambulance to University Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition but sustained severe injuries to his pelvis, ribs and one lung.

“Thankfully, Matt has suffered no head, neck or spinal injuries and is currently stable in hospital,” said team doctor Jarrad van Zuydam.

“His musculoskeletal injuries are significant, however. He suffered rib fractures on both sides as well as a small pneumothorax. He also has fractures of the sacral and pelvic bones.”

Van Zuydam said Brammeier was unlikely to require surgery.

On Twitter, Brammeier posted a selfie from the hospital, saying all was “good in the hood.”
