as in the topic, I suppose.

Had an email from O'Grady saying his first ride since THE CRASH was Thursday, and it was a BIG relief just to be able to get back on the bike.

Good news, eh? Apparently the family is on their way back to Oz for r 'n r; some of you might remember his post-crash theory he'd be back on the bike for the Vuelta and the Worlds... I thought at the time 'not likely, sport'.

Let's see him come back rejuvinated for '08.

    :D Yeh,O'Grady's a class act.Didn't see the actual crash on TV but didn't look good for him lying on the stretcher. The guy always gives 100% and ready to answer the press questions afterwards as well. Seems a good bloke allround.Great win in the Paris-Roubaix as well. Pity we can't claim him as a Brit. He's not got a British passport like Robbie Mcewan has he? :P

    A relief...that crash looked evil....

    Class act living up to the motto on his wristband...

    Need to have a few more cyclists who see the comedy of it all :lol:

    I'm sorry but which was the crash that injured him? Was it the one nobody saw on the Tour de France or something else?

    anyways, I like O'Grady like all Australian riders (have something about them) so whatever success he gets is good news for me.

    Good on yer Stuey. This has a personal significance for me as I suffered the same chest injuries nearly a year ago and have missed racing this season. Hope he comes back stronger than ever (it would be just the encouragement I need for next year)!

    CM it was a crash on that descent of the mountain - the same mountain that took Rogers out ? (not 100% sure which corner it was - no tv pics, but cyclingnews had pics of Stuey on the ground).

    I love the toughen up wristbands. Anyone seen them for sale yet ?

    Farkin hello!

    Good to hear O'Grady's back on the mend. Was gutted when he crashed out. I really like him. Seems like a real good bloke.
