Amstel Crash

Just seen it on the live feed http://wielrennen.nos.nl/ whilst getting english updates from the cyclingnews page, Frank Schleck and Matt Lloyd invovled. Didnt actually see it, ducked out for a minute. Doesnt look good from the pictures ive seen. Frank in neck brace on the strecher. There is an ambulance there. Hope they make a quick and good recovery.

Schleck has a serious head trauma, but he's always remaind conscious, according to Sporza who contacted the Saxo team doctor. Don't know if he has any other injuries or fractures. No news on Lloyd either.

Lloyd has fractured 3 verterbrae and his pelvis, he isn't moving yet (though the prognosis is hopeful) and will be in hospital for at least a month.

Scleck was discharged earlier - seems the head trauma wasn't as bad as first thought and there's no fracture.
