Torn ligaments, broken bones, or damaged muscles prevent downhillers from kicking out of the starting gate more frequently than athletes and fans desire. On January 27, 2017, Steven Nyman was flying through the air in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, on a collision course with disaster.

Collapsing to the snow upon landing, Nyman careened into the safety netting, shredding his left knee in the process. In episode four of The American Downhiller presented by POC, we follow Nyman's journey from the moment of his crash to his return to skiing, discovering just what it takes to rejoin the elite ranks of World Cup downhill racing along the way.
