Dlamini had his arm broken whilst out on a training ride. Not sure on the back story but obviously not appropriate force being applied there
According to the park he's alleged to have not paid the £6 or so entrance fee.

So that sort of force and a broken arm seems entirely reasonable eh.

They should be charged and prosecuted. Absolutely disgusting abuse of power.

Maybe they were concerned he was trying to poach some Rhino tusks. :roll:

WVA looked good yesterday in his first race since the injury. Won the sprint to the first turn. Finished fifth. Bodes well for his road season. He was clearly being careful in the technical bits. Looks like he will be OK, but there will always be the nagging thought of what he could have been had he not been injured.

Assuming he doesn't have any lingering physical impediments from his injuries, the time off could end up benefitting him in the long run. He has been competing around the calendar, burning the candle at both ends so to speak, for a few seasons now. When most road pros have been enjoying down time in the off season, WVA has been gearing up for and competing in CX at the highest level. A rest for the body might not turn out to be a bad thing.

Yes rest is always good, but that injury in the hip area will likely have some impact on how the leg is used. There is bound to be some compensation for his body to "work around" the damage. Issues of stabilization, muscle contraction sequence, etc. Whether this produces a cascade of side effects that has an impact on performance time will tell. He definitely looks good for this stage in his recovery but he is far from in the clear.

It was visable on Deceuninck Quicksteps website for 4 minutes before they removed it.

Is that really happening? The Wolfpack would be pretty much unbeatable in major spring classics.
