Christopher Laliberté


Update 10/27/20…

Update provided by a close family friend.

A little over two weeks ago Chris was released from the hospital and is now at a inpatient rehabilitation center. The goal at the center is to work on gaining overall strength and specifically to learn to balance and walk again. A part of Chris’s brain that controls balance was affected by the accident. Beyond this, Chris’s brain does not have additional damage and he has regain full cognitive capacity. Chris is extremely motivated and his progress continues to impress the medical staff every day. During the last two days, he was able to walk a few steps without assistance or support. His goal is to get out of the rehabilitation center by early November and continue to train from home. I am convinced he will succeed in doing so. I speak to Chris every day and his dedication is impressive.


On Sunday, August 16, Canadian motorcycle enthusiast/industry member Christopher Laliberté suffered a major crash during a practice session at MX Rivière-Rouge in Quebec, Canada, sustaining severe head trauma and multiple fractures in his spine, rib and cheek bone. Laliberté was immediately transported to Montréal- Hôpital du Sacré-Coeur, where he is currently in a medically induced coma to reduce swelling in the brain.


As a result of his injuries, Chris has limited mobility on the left side – with hopes of regaining function when the brain is less swollen – but he does have movement in his right arm and leg. Additionally, Chris may require surgery to repair a broken cheek bone as the fracture is causing pressure on his left eye nerve and could affect his vision.

Laliberté, a lifelong motorcycle enthusiast and valued staff member at KTM Canada, Inc., has been passionate about motocross since he was a little kid and it quickly became a big part of his lifestyle through family, friends and work. Chris is known by those around him as ambitious and always seeking perfection – both professionally and personally – and he will do anything in his power to get back on his feet as soon as possible and put in the work that has to be done. No matter how busy his life can be, he always finds a time to get on his motorcycle and do a couple of laps – that’s a moment you can’t take away from him.


R2R has established a fundraising campaign to support Chris as his medical bills are expected to be substantial even after his insurance is applied. As always, R2R is a nonprofit 501(c) (3) and your donation toward Chris’ fund is tax-deductible in the U.S. and U.K. As more information on Chris’ recovery becomes available, we will update his page here. Please leave positive messages and well wishes for Chris and his family to ready.


The Laliberté family would like to thank everyone for the support.
