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!â
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, Â 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 Â on March 18th all of us at IMB want to wish Sam a speedy recovery!
