Default Wiggins knocked off bike, broken ribs suspected.

Brad was knocked of his bike around 6.30 uk time. Hope he makes a swift recovery. WTF he was doing out training in the dark gawd only knows..one of the obvious advantages of being a full timer is never having to train in the dark!..utter madness!.

His partner tweeted it had all the hallmarks of a SMIDSEY, when will these idiots learn?

Hope this doesn't keep him out too long and effect Brads giro prep.

Get well soon Wiggo!

Yes because riding at night automatically makes it his fault.

Hope he is OK and recovers quickly, not difficult to understand the subtext of the OP

No, far from it. It is just a little strange that a fulltime professional athlete would be out that late at this time of year.
