Well that’s what happened and stopped Pinot to probably/possibly win TDF in 19, he hit his bar making a reflex move to avoid a crash

Stephen Roche was another. His knee was bashed up in a track crash in late '85 and it blighted his career thereafter. He had a bad year in '86, a phenomenal year in '87, but then it was back to famine. I think it was the '89 TdF when, after missing the '88 TdF due knee injury, his gears slipped and he banged his knee on the bars and had to abandon.

It would be three years before he was back to a high-ish level that allowed him to see out his career with two decent seasons with Carrera in '92 and '93.

I've done that before and it hurts like a MF. I think he'll recover from it in a couple weeks tops though.

Yup, can be nasty. The real risk is if the impact is severe enough to cause one of the sub-cutaneous layers over the patella to become damaged. This can result in pre-patellar friction syndrome for which a very delicate surgery is the only cure. My understanding is that there is a single doctor who performs this surgery - Dr Toon Claes in Herentals (ask me how I know :( ) Herentals just happens to be Wout's hometown and Claes was the guy who fixed Wouts hip after the surgery in France failed. Wout will be fine but definitely want to rest a blow to the knee until it feels good to ride.

You mean he hasn't posted to Strava in four days. If a bike ride isn't uploaded to Strava, did it even happen?

I can see Wout's team hiding him from a race since he has a history of killing it in his minor races then falling flat for his biggest targets.

It's almost like football players prioritizing club football over national team. Fake injuries.

I really doubt Froome is paid that much - if he is ISN are idiots. The same is true of Thomas, they pay home more than Bernal?!

Roglic stands out as underpaid.

Especially becuz WVA reportedly makes more.

This is a published magazine so they’d be liable for misreporting. Not sure why the doubt?
