Compound fracture?!! Oh man, that sounds awful!! I'd hopefully faint if I saw my own bone sticking out. Poor guy.

My brother just broke his femur in a cycling accident. I saw him in the hospital after the surgery , even all doped up it look like it hurt like hell.

I wish them both luck.

This is a cruel sport. The highs are very high and the lows are very low and we come to each in turn. Hope he recovers.

I was reading Steve Tilford's blog this morning. He broke his hip and pelvis warming up for race.

Props to the other competitor who also crashed for staying with Taylor until help got there. It sounded as though he could have gotten a new bike and continued but chose not to.

Bad news. Hopefully not as bad as initially described.. And just a few days ago he was saying he has "plenty of time" to win a classic. Uh huh.
