MEDIA RELEASE – CAM SINCLAIR RELEASES SIGNATURE SHOE
Recovering Freestyle Motocross champion Cam Sinclair along with long time sponsor GLOBE, have released a brand new ‘SINCS’ signature line of products in time for Christmas.
Sinclair had been working with Globe on his own signature shoe for over six months prior to a serious accident while competing in Spain, which left him fighting for his life. Since returning home to Melbourne, Sinclair maintained his desire for the shoes to be released as per schedule, following which Globe decided to add a hooded sweater and signature cap to the line.
“All year I have been really excited about releasing my signature shoe. My fiance Brooke actually brought the first sample of them into hospital in Madrid and placed them beside my bed to help motivate me to get better!” Cam Sinclair said.
“I’m stoked with the way they look and to have a brand new cap and hoodie with my name on it is awesome!”
The products will be available in store world wide from this November, with GLOBE running an Australia wide competition giveaway to celebrate the release of the ‘SINCS’ products. In conjunction with International Motorcycle Company, Globe are giving away two ‘Crusty Demons Bandit Pro 125cc Pit Bikes.’ Everybody who buys a pair of GLOBE ‘SINCS’ shoes during November and December can enter to win.
Anyone wishing to purchase any of the “SINCS” range of products online will be able to do so shortly via Sinclair’s personal website www.camsinclair.com.au or any good GLOBE stockists.
The new and exciting 2010 FOX MX Range is due to hit stores in Australia on Septemer 1, 2009.

Check out this cool video which was shot on Monday. Cam speaks about his rehab program and his plans for the future. Thanks to Gus from Firestorm Films for coming to a rehab session and putting this together so fast.
If you missed it, or do not have access to Australian TV, here is a story that featured on a top rating a current affairs show in Australia 2 weeks ago. It’s amazing that 1,346,000 viewers tuned into this episode. I apologize for the sound quality but it was filmed off the TV.
Since this video, Cam has started his rehabilitation and is going well. Hopefully next week we’ll have some footage from a rehab session.
Check out the video we did with Cam last night. I’ll apologize now for the poor quality but it was done very quickly and really took a lot of effort from Cam to get this done. (I’m not much of a host either) Cam just wanted to say thanks for everyones support. We’ll try and do this at least once a week to keep you guys up to date with how Cam is progressing.
That’s right, www.camsinclair.com.au has just reached 1000 members!!
The lucky 1000th member is Daniel Haymes and just for being so, he has picked up an Electric Visual Sunglass and Clothing pack. Congrats Daniel, we’ll be in touch shortly.
Well after almost 3 horrific weeks, Cam is back in Australia!!
Tuesday night Cam, Brooke and Monz were greeted at the Melbourne Airport by family and the local media. After a long flight with the paramedic they were very relieved to be back home and around family and friends. On a bad note, after everything they have been through the last few weeks, the airline company managed to loose all 6 bags and still haven’t shown up.
From the airport, Cam was taken to a leading Melbourne Hospital and was admitted right away. We met with the doctor who was on duty and he peformed a few simple test and deemed Cam was ok after the long flight home and was then taken to the ward so he could rest the night.
Wednesday morning was an early start. He was woken up for CT Scans and an MRI to check to see if the Spanish doctors had missed anything. The rest of the day was spent just relaxing and eagely waiting the results from the doctors. Unfortunatley, we won’t hear from the Neuosurgen until today.
Cam was really stoked to see a few familiar faces yesterday also with a few of our close friends coming in to see him. I also think just general things like watching TV in English and being able to communicate with the nurses etc has lifted his spirits alot.
The biggest postive that came out today was that Cam was able to walk by himself for the first time since his crash. Although it was slow and i was by his side so he didnt fall, it was still massive progess and each of the 4 laps around the ward got a little bit faster and his right foot started lifting with each step rather than it dragging.
He is still complaining about the numbness in the right side of his body starting at his face right down to his toes. Hopefully today we’ll have some answers why this is and how we can get it fixed.
I’ll be heading straight back into the hospital after work and will try and post another update tonight.
In the meantime, check out a cool story on www.fmxworld.com.au about Leo, a fan of Cam’s and their meeting at the hospital in Madrid.
First off, i must apologize for not updating the site for a few days. Since returning home to Australia, i’ve been extremely busy and this is the first chance i’ve had to sit down and fill you guys in.
Since the last update, Cam has made some more improvements in regards to his memory. He now has his memory back up until 2 weeks before the accident. It will be very unlikely for him to get those 2 weeks back, which is common with a head injury of this nature.
The movement on the right side of his body is very minimal but the doctors say this will come back in time, with rehab and a lot of determination. At this stage, he is still unable to walk unassisted and still struggles to do things like open a bottle of water or lift a fork to his mouth with his hand.
The weekend of X Games was another rough few days for Cam. The way “Best Trick” rolled out, Cam would have only had to land a Double Flip without any of the combo’s he’d been working on to get a medal. Bring on XG 16, 2010. Although it was heartbreaking for him not to be at X this year, the doctor that saved his life said “Although he did not win the event, he won the most important prize and that is life”.
As I type this Cam, Brooke and Monz are on their way home. Cam was released from the fantastic hospital in Madrid this afternoon, along with a Paramedic and a first class ticket, he has started his long journey home.
Once he arrives back home in Melbourne, he will be admitted to one of the leading hospitals in Melbourne and will be assessed by Melbourne’s leading surgeons. At this stage we are unsure the length of time Cam will need to stay in the hospital, but we don’t think it will be any longer than a couple of nights. When he gets the all clear and is released from the hospital here in Melbourne, Cam will be able to go home for the first time in over a month and start his rehab program.
Once again, we can not thank everyone for their help and support, it’s been very overwhelming and from everyone in our family, we thank you very much.
As soon as Cam is settled, in a few days time, we’ll have him do a video interview and put it up as an update straight from Cam himself.
