Gee Atherton, pushing it 100-percent on every inch of the track. This time it got away from him during qualifying at Lourdes. Brutal.

    Seems to be more of a straight up crash with a bit of a neck twist. A neck brace wont help with that.

    Yeah Gee! Get a neck brace so you can break your collarbone in a crash that wouldn't have done squat to your neck!

    Looks like he may have been knocked unconscious? Hope he's OK, and kicks ass tomorrow.

    If he was knocked unconscious, or even concussed, he would most definitely not be racing.

    You seem to know nothing about sport/life/neuroscience.

    Race runs are over 24 hours later.

    @willsoffe please explain yourself. Most contact sports have explicit rules disallowing continued participation after a concussion. For the reason that @rwondelly posted.

    Yes they do, but those rules don't cover what you do the DAY AFTER the concussion.

    In rugby union they do. Google GRTP. Most doctors will suggest similar in other sports where there is risk of re-concussion.

    @willsoffe So if 24 hours after a concussion, you still have a headache, nausea, vomitting, dizziness, and repetitive questioning, you are concussion free solely because it has been 24 hours?

    Damn! That looked rough Hope he is alright and able to race again tomorrow. Gotta agree on the neck brace, I'm amazed more WC riders aren't suing them

    everyone always seems to get such good shots of Gee eating shit

    aye. cameras are always on him anyway and he's always pushing it. crazy what the racers have to do to win. hope he was ok. i know he ran the next day but it certainly does look like he was concussed. gives me the shivers to think about riding immediately afterward.
