A shoulder injury, especially a significant injury as it seem Spies had is very bad news for any athlete. Perhaps particularly considering the forces that come into play when riding a GP bike. Anatomically the shoulder is a very complex system of bone, cartilage, muscle and tendons, and is responsible not only for supporting and articulation of the arm, but for supporting the head, upper spine and a substantial portion of the upper body mass. Surgically fixing a smashed shoulder is likely a big time surgical procedure Seems some of the posts are implying Spies is faking it or just a wimp. I'm fairly certain neither of those things is the case. Like to see Spies recover well and soon. Wishing him luck and success. We'll see...
