BMX superstar rider and MTV The Challenges host, T.J. Lavin has been placed in a medically induced coma after crashing his bike at the Dew Tour event in Las Vegas yesterday (Oct. 14, 2010). Lavin apparently lost control of his vehicle after hitting a dirt ramp, he was immediately rushed to the hospital. He is experiencing swelling of the brain and is in critical condition.
Hopefully the “King of Dirt” will pull through and make a miraculous recovery. He is a major force in the BMX world, winning nearly every competition he enters. Our thoughts and prayers are with T.J. Lavin and family.
