drphotoIn the world of BMX Racing, Donny “dR” Robinson needs no introduction.  A three-time World Champion and the 2008 Beijing Olympic Bronze Medalist, Donny’s achievements in the sport are legendary. Donny is one of only two American Men in history to have won an Olympic Medal in BMX Racing.  With a racing career spanning two decades, Donny is no stranger to concussions, having suffered well over twenty of them. Recently, Donny has begun to open up about his concussive experiences in the media to make sure that his fellow racers understand the importance of sitting out of events until healed from concussions; something that Donny was never counseled on himself until his most recent injuries.  Donny and his Wife Tiffany live in Napa, California.
