Breaking: Jared Graves hospitalised with brain tumour

The mountain bike world is reeling from the shock news that multiple world champion Jared Graves has been taken to hospital in Queensland, and is currently undergoing treatment for a brain tumour.

The 35-year-old Queenslander, who rides for the factory Specialized team in the EWS, was taken to hospital last week after a series of seizures suffered since arriving back from the last EWS round in Canada.

Doctors are expected to operate on Jared some time this week.

Thousands of fans have reacted in shock after Jared posted the news on social media today.

Jared has represented Australia in 4x and downhill, and was on the Australian Olympic squad for the Summer Games in Beijing in 2008. He has claimed three World Cup overall titles in 4x, as well as world chjampionship wins.

He was also the the 2014 EWS world champion.

On top of all that, Jared is a genuinely terrific bloke, and we all wish him the very best of luck for his recovery. More to come.
