Rider Down: Sam Blenkinsop

Just spotted this on the Team Lapierre International Facebook page. Team rider Sam Blenkinsop’s been on a little trip to the hospital.

” Broke my fibula bone in my ankle on Friday, slipped down a steep hill and it cracked!”

You end up learning a lot of things through mountain biking that normally you wouldn’t pay much attention too. One such thing is the human bone structure… So here’s a little biology lesson for you. The Fibia is the outer, lower leg bone; think of it as the smaller bone behind your shin bone. Depending on where it breaks, can be up high behind your shin or lower down in your ankle,  affects the recovery time but it’s usually quite a simple and quick fix. If there is such a thing when it comes to broken bones!

With the World Cup kicking off earlier than ever  on March 18th all of us at IMB want to wish Sam a speedy recovery!
