"It has been a rough a few days but I wanted to update everyone by
informing you that I fell off my bike during a ride on Saturday 2
January. The fall resulted in a few broken fingers and bones in my
hand, wrist and arm. I underwent an operation on Monday 4 January to
insert some wires in my wrist.
The operation was a success and I am
back home today. I should be out of plaster within 6 weeks. The good
news is I will be staying in the Uk for the TCR Show and the 220 Awards
Dinner so I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible over
those days in February (13th/14th). Smiles, Chrissie."
We'll have more news as it becomes available.
Wellington is just the latest Ironman champion to crash. In the last several months both 6-time Ironman Champion Dave Scott and top Kona Ironman finisher Andy Potts have had serious bike accidents.
