Tour de France Cyclist Suffers Sickening Fall On Broken Collarbone

A fractured collarbone didn't stop Jean-Christophe Peraud from riding in stage 17 of the Tour de France but his high pain tolerance was pushed beyond its limits by this fall on his injured shoulder.



The 36-year-old injured himself while training on the course before the stage and was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of the clavicle. Peraud lay in ninth place in the overall standings and was determined to compete the time trial but was forced to abandon the race after his unfortunate slip. Peraud sounded in reasonably good spirits given the circumstances after the race, "I am in good health and it's only a broken collarbone. It will be a relief to get home, and then we will aim for another objective when my body recovers.”
