Nah he'll be in Tokyo. If a ballie like me can be on an indoor bike 4 days after surgery and ride the DC 7 weeks post op he can make Tokyo althought I would say its touch and go. Will his shoulder be strong enough to the handle the strain of manhandling the bike over an XCO course? He's young and fit so he should be able to recover in time

Rob Warner must be lying in the fetal position in his shower with all his clothes on and cold water running whilst crying uncontrollably with Pidcock being out of the running currently! 

Well I posted that on PB ... let's see the backlash!

if it's just collarbone he could be back on the bike in no time, we've seen MotoGP riders racing two days after this op, these guys are no soccer players

Whoa, the bike 

 

 

With that front wheel smashed like that, did he hit something?

Its strange there isn't more detail around. Surely he would have a car following him? Or is he not that 'big' yet...

Also, its a TT bike, which might explain the extra speed needed to bomb the frame like that, although I hope he wasn't giving it the beans through town. Weird. Sucks.

Really sad to read, the guy is a machine and I was really looking forward to seeing him in the Olympics after watching him destroy the course and opposition in Nove Mesto. Hopefully 8 weeks is enough for him to recover 🤞

I think he lives in Andorra  now - so goes out for training rides solo. Much like Willie Wallie documents in his vlog.

All those mtb and cyclocross bike handling skills.

... can't save you when sh!t hits the fan. Could have been anything that caused it. Dog in the road even...
