    Default Wiggo Busted (up)

    Guess the grace period following the olympics for cyclists on the roads of the UK is up.

    If he was turning blue, it doesn't sound very good. cracked ribs and puntured lung?

    Pneumothorax unlikely, cold very likely. One of the things they stress in WFR/WEMT training is get the victim on something insulating them from the ground as soon as is safe. It's amazing how much the ground, espeically when damp, can suck the warmth out.

    And how much the pool rescue sessions in EMT training can suck the warmth out of the trainee.

    Wonder if Bradley had lights?

    No jokes in the Wiggins house for at least 6 weeks,
    and no sneezing or coughing either,
    all those are a killer with broken ribs!

    Might have to switch focus from the Giro to the Le Tour.

    White-Van-Man strikes again. The scourge of cyclists and motorists all over the UK. Hope he heals up soon.

    Betcha he dropped a couple c-bombs :) In all seriousness I can't imagine what it must be like to see a setback like that for anyone, much less someone at that level.
