Shoulder dislocation stops play...

Hmmm well the race today was a bit of a shocker for us. On our first run in qualifying we had to do a big support stroke to stay upright and Etienne's left shoulder dislocated. It was very sore for him at the time but it's back in now and he's relatively comfortable physically although obviously disappointed. Nothing like sport to provide you highs and lows in rapid succession, it's incredible how all your plans change in an instant.

Thanks very much to everyone who helped us today and in particular - our amazing physio Julie Pearce (this is her last race traveling with the team so we couldn't let is pass without drama), the rest of our team who were on the scene - Gaz, Paul, Mark and Elaine, Thomas Kucera for jumping in to help us get out, the Slovak team doctor for his help and the local Spanish Trauma Doctor and anyone else I missed...

Thanks also to everyone for the kind messages of support, you realise what a nice sport we are part of when something like this happens and everyone wants to wish you well and help you out. We don't have much information at the moment so we'll leave it at that for now and update you all when we know more.

In the meantime here's a photo of Etienne keeping his spirits up by munching on a Golden Chicken Plus from La Granga, one of our favourite Seu traditions.

Cheers Tim
