What's Cool In Road Cycling

Horner in Lecco hospital with punctured lung and broken ribs

The American cyclist Chris Horner had an unfortunated accident while out training around Lake Como.

The details of the accident are still to be evaluated, however it seems that in the afteroon he was probably hit by a car while riding on the Lecco side of the Lake.

He was immediately transported to Lecco hospital where the team’s medical doctor (Luca Pollastri) met him to evaluate the circumstances with the hospital’s doctors.
The medical checks taken show no head concussion, but a punctured lung, four broken ribs and cuts in his head which required stitches.

The medical staff of LAMPRE-MERIDA are in close contact with the doctors of the hospital and will be informed of any further progress.
