Earlier this month, Lago CRASHED hard during a snowboarding trick -- fracturing his jaw, breaking several teeth and gashing open his tongue and chin.

Dude underwent a painful jaw-wiring surgery that was supposed to sideline him from the X Games competition in Aspen, Colorado -- but sources close to the athlete tell us Lago will compete in 4 official events ... beginning today.

Scotty Lago is a BAD MF.

no thanks    

ALREADY BEEN DONE.....'96 broken no ****tered jaw two teeth lost broken wrist...went riding the next week with teeth wired shut. Landings were to jarring so I just cruised. He will not land the big tricks. It vibrates the jaw on impact. Dum idea then and now...especially since that is his lively hood.
