Broken Ribs End Chris Horner’s Season


Vuelta a España Champion Chris Horner is effectively ending his season after breaking ribs in a high speed crash at the World Championships last Sunday.

Horner, who was one of many riders involved in a huge pile-up in the first lap of the road race, broke ribs on the back side of his body and will not be able to participate in the races he was scheduled to ride, most notably Il Lombardia and the Tour of Beijing.

Horner: “Everything went well in the last couple of months, except for the World Championships. Broken ribs are really painful and I’ll be off the bike for at least two or three weeks. It’s sad that I can’t finish my season on a good note in Lombardy or China.”
