He must have paid somebody a few quid !!! What a ridiculous judgement. There is no way Colin can be fit the state his collar bone is in. He runs the risk of coming off and aggravating his already bad break, or worse still, taking someone else out and injuring them! Can't understand this at all !!

depending on the break, a collar bone isnt a big deal. a girl i know broke her's in 2 places (3 bits) and was back on a bike in 3 weeks. and that was with the national health sorting her out! the facilities these guys have access to our beyond our comprehension, and you have to remember that fitness levels for these guys, along with diet, training schedule etc, mean they heal and bounce back quicker than an armchair warrior who's only exercise is furiously tapping on a keyboard

Lots of drugs to stop this and to stop that.

Many years ago a survey was given to Olympic medal winners. The question? Would you take drugs to ensure a win but with a result of death a few years later? The vast majority said YES.

The riders come back quickly, but at a cost. I personaly believe the riders earn every cent...How is Colin going to feel in 20 years?

I no collin is a good rider but feel he has had his day and needs to move over. what is riding with a broken collarbone gonna prove and to try and race last week was a joke. now if he was leading the championship i could understand
