After injuring his knee during a trampoline session a few weeks ago, Oakley’s newest signee, Swede Henrik Harlaut, recently underwent arthroscopic surgery to fix his injured knee.

While not initially not thought to be too serious, Henrik’s doctor discovered that his meniscus was  actually hanging loose, so it had to be stitched back on both sides.

Once the operation is complete, Henrik’s meniscus will be stronger and even better then normal. However, the required healing time requires 6 weeks in fixed position, with an added 4-6 weeks for rehabilitation.

Henrik remains focused on getting healthy in time for the Winter X-Games where he is finally an invited rider.
