On April 5, during the Candide Invitational,
and on one of the biggest jumps ever made, Candide Thovex came up
several feet short on the "Grosse Bertha" (Big Bertha, in English),
bounced violently, and slid to the bottom of the landing.
He broke two vertebrae in his lower back upon casing. It was
immediately reported by Skieur magazine in France that no paralysis
occurred and Candide would make a full recovery. It appears that
recovery is taking place quickly and in accordance with initial
"Candide is in good spirits and doing well," said Paddy Kaye of
Rossignol. "He's walking and will be off his skis for a few months."
Great news considering the viciousness of the crash. "He cracked two
vertebrae... and knows he was lucky," adds Kaye.
Everyone here at Freeskier gives our best wishes to Candide. Here's to a full and quick recovery!
Skiing isn't a habit. It's passion and it will always be so!!
