Danny Hart Out For 2012 World Champs

Giant Factory Off-Road Team rider Danny Hart is currently recovering from shoulder surgery and will miss the 2012 World Championships and the final World Cup race of the season. The current Downhill World Champion dislocated his shoulder in a crash while training in France on July 12, the day after the Air DH event at Crankworx Les Deux Alpes.

Following the crash, Danny immediately returned home to Great Britain, where he underwent surgery to repair torn ligaments in his left shoulder. He started physical therapy a few weeks ago and has already regained 70 percent range of motion. Danny’s recovery is right on track, but he won’t be ready for the final races of the 2012 season. He is now focused on building his strength for 2013.

Everyone in the Giant family wishes Danny a speedy recovery. We look forward to seeing him back stronger than ever in 2013 on his Giant Glory!

Team GB was awarded seven elite male places, as well as a a space for Danny Hart as he is the defending World Champion. As Hart is unable to compete, he hasn’t ‘taken’ a place from any other riders, but also cannot be replaced. Brendan Fairclough remains as first reserve for the team.
