Three time Kona World Ironman Champion Chrissie Wellington has started the New Year with a serious bike accident
According to her web site:
"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.
