Updates on yesterday’s crashes

Posted on 18. Feb, 2009 by in race

The wet conditions and tough racing continue to take their toll as more riders crashed yesterday.

Teddy King (Cervelo) crashed in the neutral section and suffered a broken left arm in a nasty fall and subsequently had to abandon the race.

Omer Kem (Bissell) crashed in the sketchy downhill off Sierra Road and was diagnosed with a fractured pelvis. The break does not require surgery, and Omer has been released from the hospital.

Ian MacGregor (Team Type 1) was luckier.  He also crashed on the downhill but did not suffer any broken bones and only had three stitches to his chin and four to his left shin.  His teammate Darren Lill also abandoned with knee problems.
