Cycling: Two months after a serious fall: Bernal is cycling again – cycling

The 25-year-old posted a photo on Instagram (local time) showing him cycling alongside another person in an orange jersey on a road. “The happiest day of my life,” wrote the Colombian professional cyclist. “After two months and 20 broken bones, I’m back here and wanting more. See you on the road.”

Among other things, eleven broken ribs

At the end of January, Bernal drove his time trial bike into a stationary bus while training. The Giro winner suffered several broken bones, including eleven ribs, two vertebrae, a thigh and a kneecap. In addition, both lungs were perforated. Bernal himself had put his chances of not being paraplegic at only five percent. Only about three weeks later he was training again on the home trainer.
