Another update / video

http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/other-sports/84954537/cyclist-keagan-girdlestone-isnt-giving-up-on-his-dream-despite-almost-losing-his-life-in-an-horrific-crash-in-june

He can spend some 20 minutes on the trainer these days, but he still has plenty of problems.

Well... when this thread was first opened it was believed he had died, so of course nobody expected this.
Nice to be wrong.

Cycling coverage sometimes gets too infatuated with courage and will (and #suffering), but sometimes you just have to stand aghast. More than a milestone this is a monument to an indefatigable spirit. Chapeau.

I saw that. Many decent NRS riders would take that result on good form. Great news

Keagan's apparently riding the 2.2 NZ Cycle Classic next week. First UCI race since the accident.

A nice interview with him here.
