    I do not want to keep seeing that crash, or the poor bugger being poured into an ambulance.

    Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.

    I switched the player off 10 seconds before it happened.

    I've never normally got any interest by this part of the season so Lombardy always kinda slips by unnoticed.

    Today, I was all set for it but Cornish 4G+/GCN failed me just as they got to the final climb.

    Bravo Jakob...

    the X-rays showed a fractured pelvis and a right lung contusion. Will surely miss remainder of this season.
