Anyone want to give odds that he'll be out of a ride before the end of the season?
Doctor's advising 3 weeks of therapy then back at it. I don't care who your doctor is, 3 weeks is not enough to heal a shoulder. He may be able to push the bike around but there'll be chronic damage.
Too bad, but cest la vie. Maybe he can get on the pedal circuit? Not much for counter-steering there.
