Never good to hear about a cylist on car collission, especially when it involces "bruising and bleeding on the brain". I hope that turns out to be less serious than it sounds for Shane Sutton

"The 32-year-old was struck on Crow Orchard Road in Wrightington, Lancashire, as a woman driving a white Vauxhall Astra van pulled out of a BP petrol station. She was heard to have said afterwards: ''I can't believe it. Of all the people to hit, bloody Bradley Wiggins.''

You clearly didn't watch last year's TdF. :roll: That was a very US Postal like performance by Team Sky this year :wink: I think Wiggins' shaving off his mutton chops doomed him to bad luck. Anyway, Wiggins is out of hospital and seems to be all ok apart from a dislocated finger (see link below).

Shaving them off would save him at least 10watts.. :D

What Shane's brother Gary was told :
"There were no scratches on his bike, and it was very, very lucky he had a helmet on. That was the information I was given."

Get well quick Shane. You're an exceptional talent.
