Broken collarbone

On Sunday's race I broke my collarbone (clavicle). Report coming, but if anyone knows anything about this, please drop me a mail or comment below. Going to see a specialist tomorrow morning in St. Vincents.



Man it hurts :(

And a huge thanks for all the well wishes - it means a lot to me!

Looks like you have a zip embedded in there as well. Bad luck man... hope you recover soon!

Hard luck Ryan. Looks like you might need some of Lance's titanium implants there.

Heal fast and well. :)

Sorry to hear about the break Ryan. Hope you're on the mend soon.

bad luck Ryan. Hope you have a fast recovery. You are going to lean to hate the turbo trainer after this!

The turbo trainer is sitting ominiously in the corner. Don't like the thing but hopefully I'll be able to ride rollers in a week or two too.

It's funny, you would think the turbo would be a nicer alternative to riding in the rain but even with DVDs etc... etc... I still don't like it.

I'm not in much pain but am still really awkward - can't move my arm at all. Tough trying to eat a lot less as I'm not training...

No bother. Like the other guy I really should put together a post pulling all the info together - at lesat in an Irish context.
