    I was shocked to learn that Andrei Tchmil had suffered a cancerous tumor and underwent a successful surgery for its removal.  :o

     I had read about it. Hard to believe he is now 57.
    Really glad he could get operated upon in Italy, as already here in the UK cancer treatment has pretty much been postponed because of coronavirus.
    Hard to believe, when cancer is a certain killer but corona far from it.

    Did you see the most recent interview with him (in French with English subtitles) by Johan Bruyneel that I linked in another thread?

    Quite disappointing of Andreï to accept an interview with these guys ! But apparently, Armstrong claimed that Andreï wasn't nice to him and Andreï didn't deny it.  :lol

    It also struck me that he could get treated in Italy, especially in Brescia, at the epicenter of the virus.

    I saw a recent story about Bruyneel that dates back from the 2018 Tour of Flanders. He met with Edwig Van Hooydonck and wanted a selfie with him.



    Van Hooydonck then said he saw that picture in Het Nieuwsblad with a news that made it sound like the two were the best of friends as though nothing had happened (regarding the dark side in the 90's of course). Bruyneel claimed that Van Hooydonck came to see him and Edwig claims the other way round.

    Quote
    At the start of the Tour of Flanders I usually go to Café Den Engel because they have a good Stella. Then I saw Johan going round uncomfortably. Nobody was interested in him. I had the feeling that nobody wanted to have anything to do with him. Then all of a sudden he saw me standing, he came to see me and shook hands. We talked for five minutes and then Johan asked me if he could have a selfie with me. I agreed. My wife was there and could take the picture herself. There was nothing more and thereafter we both went our own way. Two days later I saw the picture with Johan and I in the Nieuwsblad with a story that didn't fit at all. Then came this story that he lost a lot of money and that his wife left him because of the affair with Armstrong. That is a bit pathetic.

    Johan sent this picture to the newspaper [Nieuwsblad] and told them that we now get along very well as though nothing had happened but he lies.

    OK It doesn't really belong in this thread but the story had to be shared.

    Somewhat of a bizarre accident for Terptra, but the outcome sounds fairly serious, if not actually life threatening:

    While I am at it, though no longer an official "man down" incident, it's another worrying hospitalisation.

    Damn geese. We get those here all the time, and I can't believe how dumb or naive they are. I mean, they're still birds, and they can fly, but instead they choose to wander slowly across one the main, busy roads to get from one pond to another. Traffic will have to come to complete stop...except for when it doesn't. And then there's nothing left but a debris pile of feathers and various geese parts embedded into the road. 
    :S

    I think I've read (but I don't remember where) that he's not in a coma, but in an artificial coma.
    Those are much more controlled (since they're induced by medication) and easier to be brought back from, and are done to keep the body in a state where it can spend its energy on healing instead of moving, talking etc.
    But of course, it is still a (sort of) coma, and you don't know for sure until you bring people back from it.

    Some medical updates:

    No brain or spinal cord injury, kept in induced coma because of gravity of injuries, had facial surgery during the night, doctors will try to wake him up from induced coma later today.

    Good lord. That was one of the most horrific and violent crashes I've ever seen. I also wonder how that poor photographer even survived. He looked sandwiched right between the on-coming Jakobsen and a section of metal barrier.
     :(


    Of course now everyone is complaining about how dangerous this downhill sprint finish has always been, and yet the teams line up for the race, again and again. The riders have all the power, if they could just figure out a way to harness and utilize it. Such a dumb sport.

    Not great on patient confidentiality, that, and not exactly detailed either.

    And here it is:
    https://www.deceuninck-quickstep.com/en/news/4478/fabio-jakobsen-brought-out-of-induced-coma

    Jakobsen brought out of induced coma, could move arms and legs and communicate with doctors. No major neurological problems, but due to the facial injuries and the maxillofacial surgery, speaking and eating will be challenges, and the road to recovery is still a long one.

     Plus the biggest crash of all has ended Evenepoel's season and with it his Giro debut.

    https://twitter.com/lequipe/status/1294699560191787010

    A fractured pelvis.

    https://www.cyclingnews.com/news/remco-evenepoel-crashes-over-the-barriers-in-il-lombardia/

    Roglic not looking good either.
    More or less fell off his bike at the finish. Which probably means concussion, so won't start tomorrow and will have to rest for at least several days.

    Fractured pelvis and lung contusion (right lung) for Remco. Davide Bramati also talked about heavy leg contusion.

    As Searchy said on the chatbox, there was no real need to show it 20 times. As a matter of fact I was watching the race up until that point and then well I was waiting for was reassuring news. Once they said he was conscious and not in life-threatening condition (being conscious is not everything though), I turned off the TV and didn't follow the rest of the race as I've still had a stress illness for two years now, I'd rather avoid watching such things. It gave me acid reflux. That was the wisest thing for me to do.

    I think it's about time RCS ditches the Sormano out. I've never been in favour of its addition to the race route. I've never been in favour of such steep climbs which only favours specialised light-weight climbers while the former route with just Ghisallo, Civiglio and San Fermo could give their chances to all types of riders : climbers or all rounders. Even in the sixties, they only included the Sormano three times in the route before scrapping it. It should be said that in those days, it was a dirt road and riders went faster on foot then on the bike. It was surrealistic. Now there's that descent. The weird thing is that in the sixties, as far as I know, you didn't have such horrifying crashes in that descent but then again these were different times and perhaps on dirt roads, they descended slower. Now since 2011 how many riders landed in that ravine ? Philippe Gilbert in 2012 with rainbow jersey on, Jan Bakelants, Laurens De Plus and an Italian rider whose name I don't remember in 2017 ? I do realise that risks is inherent to the sport of cycling but if every year you have riders falling into the same ravine, that no risk anymore, it's suicide. All this for a 20% climb that favours featherweight climbers ???

    First thing Remco said to Lefevere when he was taken away from the ambulance to the hospital was

    "Sorry, Patrick !"  (about not being able to win the race, that must be)

    "Remco, you are still alive, you can speak, shut up !"

    These are terrible circumstances but I still have to laugh about this.  :D

    Uughhh... :(

    Just catching up on all this now. Watched the highlights of Lombardia before even realizing the crash had taken place (there was no mention of it in the highlights, only in the comments below).

    How many great, young talents will this cruel sport rob itself of?

    Hopefully Remco will return in time, but will he return to the same extraordinary caliber?

    Obviously the most important thing is his own well being, but it's just so discouraging to see yet another future star be struck down like this. Hopefully this case is just a setback and not a termination. Very sad to hear about this.


    Quote
    Team manager Patrick Lefevere told media at the Como hospital that Evenepoel is unlikely to race again in 2020, explaining the fracture was at the head of his femur and in the pelvic area.

    That sounds reminiscent of Floyd's injury. Could be dire for any elite cyclist.

    Another member of the Deceuninck-QuickStep squad sidelined by injury after he crashed. Mattia Cattaneo cracked a vertebra which will require six-to-eight weeks of rest before he can ride again.

    Also Androni Giocattoli-Sidermec's Simon Pellaud has been left nursing facial injuries and broken teeth after his disc brakes failed on a descent.
