Join us to help Ryan and his family...

On Saturday 30th April 2022 at the first round of the MX Nationals Ryan was in an accident and is currently in Hospital in London. As a result of the accident, Ryan's spinal cord is badly damaged leaving him paralysed from the chest down.

Unfortunately, that is not all... Ryan has broken some bones in his neck/back which could be causing more complications as one of them could be pushing onto the spinal cord. He had complications breathing but these have now stabilised and he's breathing on his own, and he has movement in his arms albeit with a lot of pins and needles, and is considerably weaker.

The doctors have said he should go on to have full movement in his arms and neck (once bones have healed) and breathe independently but have said that Ryan will most likely he will never walk again.

Ryan's family has given us permission to create this fundraising page and on their behalf, we ask that people give as much or as little as they can to help Ryan at this horrible time.

The information above has come through from Ryan's brother and we will keep everyone updated with Ryan's progress through this page.

Thank you...

John Brame (Managing Director of R2R UK Charity) on behalf of Ryan and his family.

PRESS RELEASE - Friday 13th May 2022

Friday 13th May

Motocross racer Ryan Gardiner suffered a serious and potentially life-changing injury racing at the MX Nationals event at Landrake in Cornwall.


The 26-year-old Essex racer suffered a spinal injury and faces an uncertain future with many challenges.


Having undergone one lengthy operation Ryan faces more surgery before he can properly assess what the future holds for him.


In the meantime Ryan’s family and friends have been supporting him. Ryan and his family have been blown away by the support expressed by the motocross community, from the initial race accident to his current situation.


Ryan was treated at hospital in Plymouth before being transferred to the Royal London Hospital, a specialist spinal injury hospital closer to his home. 


Ryan and his older brother Elliot raced from an early age in schoolboy events and Ryan recently returned to racing.


Elliot said: “Ryan would like to thank family and friends for their support since his accident.


“He would also like to thank the motocross community for the messages of support.


“He was so excited for this year and competing in the MX Nationals, motocross was everything and he was so fit.”


If you would like to support Ryan and help him on his journey he now has a fundraising page set up by Road 2 Recovery (UK).


Road 2 Recovery will be supporting Ryan on his journey with fundraising activities, access to specialist equipment and advice on what the future holds.
