its both sad on the one part, and ammusing on the other.
Cmon.... guy falls off his bike 6 miles into his cross-country cycle, its is rather unfortunate, and it is in our nature to laugh at other peoples misfortunes.
On the other hand, all credit for him for beeing prepared for things like this to happen to him in order to raise the profile of the Union refurb. JC doesnt strike me as the sportiest guy in the world, and i know he has been training quite hard for the cycle. How many other people can we say have broken their arm for the Union?
As you may have already heard, sadly I have been forced to postpone my sponsored attempt to cycle from Land?s End to John o?Groats (aimed at raising money for the Beit Building Project).
Whilst cycling in Cornwall last Thursday I was caught in severe storms that on the same day caused two serious coach crashes and flooded a harbour town nearby. I accidentally fell off my bike on the outskirts of Penzance and broke my right hand wrist in several places. I am due to undergo surgery to realign my arm and insert a plate in my wrist on Monday.
Naturally I am very disappointed by this turn of events and I am sorry if I have let anyone down. I am determined to re-attempt this challenge in September when I expect to have made a full recovery. In the meantime I will try to stay as fit as I can and I plan to return to work by the end of next week.
In essence this challenge has been postponed, not cancelled, so if you are still interested in sponsoring me then please visit my website at:
this is just too funny! i will definitely donate NOW.
but tell me, i'm not the amazing sportsman, but i've done my share of leisurely bike tours of poland, germany, france and italy and had no troubles over about 100km+ a day, how the hell did he manage to pull this stunt?!?!
it's almost more difficult to do what he did than to act normally!!
having ridiculed him enough and laughed so hard i cried, i do wish you a speedy recovery as no injury is fun.
but the way it happened, CLASSIC
