Axell Hodges posted on social media:
Last Wednesday was just one of those days. I crashed and broke my right femur while riding out in the sand dunes. I’m very thankful to have family and friends by my side while I was down. Also a special thank you to @tyler_ravelle for taking action and helping me out as well. He wasn’t even with us but he came right up, tied up my legs, got me on my back, and was constantly checking my pulse to make sure I wasn’t losing blood. This made me feel so much more at ease knowing that everything was all good while waiting for the helicopter. Surgery went good and I’m now back home resting up. This has been a difficult year, but I won’t let it break me. I’m gunna take this time to heal up and get my mind right. I can’t wait to come back and have some fun riding dirt bikes again
