Cyclist down this morning - Ganges St corner

Saw a Cyclist down this morning (Tuesday 22nd) on this relatively fast LH corner.
Ambulance was in attendance and they were installing a neck brace.

Anyone know how they are?
Hope all is well and that it was just precautionary.

Just heard from a friend that the guy has a bunch of skin off and suffered a dislocated shoulder. In a sling for 6 weeks.
Just took the corner too fast on a morning where there had been a little bit of rain overnight and the front wheel slipped out from underneath him.
It's a fast corner that can be a bit sketchy even in prefect conditions. WIll be taking it slow round there from now on.

Road past the ambulance with my husband on Tuesday. We were wondering if it was a cyclist but couldn't see a bike. Ouch!
