As the title says, out for 3 months, hit by a British woman in a car whilst training abroad. :cry:

    I've somehow missed this news. He's not a particularly exciting rider but he changes the dynamic of the race for the better. Disaster for him personally as well. Hopefully a speedy recovery.

    Possibly nationality is relevant given the driver was on the wrong side of the road, I.e the opposite to that in the UK.

    It was a woman driving and she was British , are you suggesting that should be kept secret ? If so, perhaps you can explain to us why that should be ? Are you trying to make the culprit into a victim in some contrived way here ?

    Easy, tigers. It was reported that the driver was a British woman in her 70's, in a right hand drive car, who splits her time between Spain and UK; which is relevant in that she was on the wrong side of the road, going someway to possibly explaining how the accident happened.

    I do have some sympathy for her, mind.
    It's only a bit of sport, Mun. Relax and enjoy the racing.

    Yeah it is.

    I've been a Boonen fan long enough to know if you're not full tilt training by end of Jan you won't be at the level required.

    No chance he'll be anything for MSR.

    JD isn't going to perform, word has it that Waeytens is going to be the leader which I'm very interested to see. After many ops a couple of years ago, he now has the chance to make a name for himself.
