After successfully raising the neccessary funds throught a fundraiser, Matt Macduff`s giant Loop started coming to life in South Africa. After a lot of hard work and sleepless nights, Marshall and the crew pushed the boundaries of physics and managed to build a 40 foot tall wooden loop. With this gigantic structure standing in place, everything was ready for Matt Macduff to set a new world record for the tallest loop ever ridden on a bicycle. Unfortunately, as he dropped in and attempted to ride around the giant Loop, he deviated from his trajectory at the loop`s highest point. The deviation sent him and his bicycle out of the loop while being completely upside down, which led to a 40 ft fall directly to compacted dirt. It was reported that Matt Macduff broke his right ankle and right wrist, but did not suffer from any injuries to his head, neck or spine, and he did not lose consciousness after the crash. Matt already had a few surgeries, but he is awaiting to see a specialist as he will need complete wrist reconstruction. Despite the gravity of his situation, Matt feels lucky and he`s aware that a crash of this amplitude could have had tragic consequences. In a true Macduff fashion, Matt stays very positive about the accident and keeps smiling from his hospital bed. Please take a minute to send him some healing vibes and show your support! We will keep you updated as soon as we have more information.
