    You would imagine that guys like that would have contracts that would prevent them doing anything much other than tiddlywinks and bar sports in their leisure time.

    He has to be really careful with the legs though.He's lucky he rides for Team Sky as it could have been a different story with a less well funded outfit.
    I'm also surprised he was allowed to do White water rafting too

    He's been back on a track bike for several weeks and was then talking about venturing onto the road so looks like he's on the road to recovery.
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.

    It wasn’t technically the white water rafting that injured him. But yeah, know what you guys are getting at.

    All he did was jump off the raft... it must have been horrific looking down and seeing the damage, thinking of his career potentially ruined just larking about.

    As an aside, quite an unassuming collection of cars (presumably provided by Ford) given his presumed pay packet. You'd think the sponsors could rustle up a Focus RS or Mustang at least.

    Miss the Jag days, I must say. How much would you say he is on then?!

    I thought he jumped of the bank into the water. Whatever though - it happened and he has to get better.
