For those of you that don't know, Todd Wells and little brother Rude, are both readers here, though never post.

Rude just finished U23 cross worlds this weekend and was looking good in 5th place until a crash. He managed to get up and limp on for a last place finish being pulled with one lap to go. After the race a quick trip to the hospital to get some stitches in his face and find out that his elbow is broken.

You can be proud Rude, most guys wouldn't have even gotten up with a broken elbow.

Just wanted to wish you a speedy recovery and a job well done.

Cheers

PS. I hope gully's not to upset about losing his brand new wheels.

Wow he's really brave! Sometimes with the dogged determination to win, you don't really feel the pain!

PS: The guy behind him from Zimbabwe, looks to be 12 years old!! :lol: :oops:

I saw him on television. A really pity he crashed that beautiful set of wheels indeed. :oops:

However I hadn't thought he would have continued his race... and then suddenly I saw him fighting for his changes after this accident. Really brave! Good spirit! Respect!

I didn't know he is reading this forum. So if he reads this, I wish you a good recovery and all the best. :thumbup:

I thought I recognised Reynolds wheels on television, the front wheel totally ruined. :?

"The American team struggled in the U23 race after a start-line pile up. It's best-placed rider, Jesse Anthony, earned only 41st place. The American rider with the worst time of it though was U.S. U23 National Champion Troy Wells. During the crash at the start, Wells collided with a section of barrier and spent the entire day bleeding from the crown of his nose and riding a mellow pace at the back of the field." - Cyclingnews.com Report: click here!

good luck recovering guys! I know how much this sucks, but I'm sure you'll get back soon and do great next year!
I watched all of the worlds on tv and did see one of you ruin a nice front reynolds wheel right from the start, too bad these things have to happen on the worlds.

They were Reynolds wheels, and the front was a complete write-off, including a brand new Dugast.

The wheel is toast, but the new Dugast Rhino is still good.
