Brendan Fairclough took a helicopter ride away from the Lenzerheide World Cup after coming into contact with a particularly unpleasant lump of rock.
The reported damage to the man who was fresh from Audi Nines and straight back into World Cup racing is a fifteen (yes fifteen) centimetre gash to his thigh. 100 hundred stitches was the tally. That is grim.
Happy healing Brendog, hope to see you back swinging soon.
