Ben breaks collar bone in Portugal

During some pre season testing in Portugal last week, Ben had a high speed crash when he caught his bottom bracket on a hidden rock. The bike stopped and ejected him over the bars and on to his shoulder causing a fracture to his collar bone. He came out of the crash, bounced onto his feet and had to run at the same speed at which he had crashed at to stop him hitting the dirt again!

After seeing the local medics and having an x-ray, he flew home the same day to get a thorough examination. The collar bone is broken as you can see in the x-ray but Ben has since been out riding and hopes to be back to fitness again within 2-3 weeks.
