Loosely connected with cycling but more connected with Ironman, Terenzo Bozzone has been hit by a truck while out training on his bike today and has been seriously injured. Truck that hit him drove off as well. Hope they find the scum bag. 

He was in great form as well, similar happened to Tim Don and he's back smashing it a year after breaking his neck the day before the IM World Champs in Kona when he was knocked off his bike on the Big Island.

I popped down to Kenilworth and then onto Leamington for the Tour of Britain today. They go through so fast that I was glad they did a South/North so could see them more then once.

I missed this story when it came out, but I have just read that Kristina Vogel has been left paralysed as a result of her accident on the track in June.

Did I hear right?  Just caught the end of the sports news and I'm sure the reporter said that if Simon Yates succeeds in winning the Vuelta then it will be the first time that three different riders of the same nationality have won the three Grand Tours in the same year.

Wouldn't surprise me, although strictly Thomas is Welsh and Froome's Kenyan! ;)

Great ride by Yates in the Vuelta.  Both he and his brother might be a reasonable bet for the Worlds.

Mens Worlds Road Race this Sunday on what looks like a really tough course.  Yates boys for us but I would be putting my money on Alaphilippe.  Anyone but Valvarde.

FinisherPix mate, I very rarely buy them but that picture sums up Sunday pretty well for me, in the hurt locker on a beautiful day in a beautiful place.

No big surprise to be honest, new owners at Sky wont want to be associated with the doubt surrounding the team.
