BMX Star in Coma After Failed Jump

Last night, during the Dew Tour Championship event in Las Vegas, BMX star T.J. Lavin lost control of his bike, fell, and was knocked unconscious. The 33-year-old Lavin, who is also the host of MTV’s Real World/Road Rules Challenge, was attempting a combination jump called a “nac nac.” To perform a nac nac, “as the rider leaves the jump, he whips the bike sideways, removes the front leg and swings it over the back of the bike while looking back.”

Lavin is currently in a medically induced coma as the doctors try to reduce swelling of his brain.

We wish all the best for T.J. and his family.
