James Cracknell Fractures Skull

Jul 17, 2010
Cracknell and Redgrave are awesome athletes and bringing some good publicity to cycling at the entry level with their charity efforts. This latest accident will bring plenty of media attention to the dangers of the sport because a celebrity was involved, unfortunately it won't change the habits of moronic drivers all over the world.

Sounds like he is recovering ok though, if it was driver error I hope the penalty is enormous.
