They probably designed it specifically for the long jump.

Hope it's nothing serious, I was really looking forward to watching this.[:(]

Thacker crashed earlier this year. He broke some ribs and the t-5 vertebrae in his back. Right now he can't move anything from his chest down. I believe he is in Colorado at a rehab center right now

Taken from thackers website. He isn't doing much better then blair morgan right now.


On Nov 18th Paul was practicing for the upcoming season when a small bobble on his landing sent him into the bars and threw him from the sled. Paul was immediately taken to Regions hospital in St Paul, Minnesota where it was determined that he had broken ribs, collapsed lung and some broken vertebras in his back. Paul has been alert and in great spirits during this entire ordeal and is still his typical self around the nurses! He has had surgery to help relieve some pressure in his back and as he puts it “put humpty dumpty back together!”. Paul’s surgery went well and although it will be a long and slow recovery you can be sure you will see him out and about as soon as he can be!

Bigger air, bigger injuries. That really sucks about both guys getting hurt. I think they both have a lot to do with the progression of our sport and the progression of the sleds we ride. Speedy recovery guys!

Levi Levi Levi... Always seems he's doing something insane, and frequently crashing something. Didn't know about Thacker either. But I remember when Blair Morgna went down, hopefully that doesn't happen to Thacker. Hope to see Levi for New Years though!!

cant move from the chest down. and people laugh at speed runners for being boring. atleast if we have a big fail you slide down the ice at 100 mph and rub holes in your bibs.

all the money in the world isnt going to matter now if he dont get better. i will stick to driving like an old lady on my heavy old sled thank you.

Levi jumped 361' during practice setting a new world record. The Red Bull jump on new years has been canceled as a result from his injury though. He is expected to make a full recovery.
