Bad news for Dan "Affy" Atherton as he took a hard slam during downhill practise this morning. I just spoke to his mechanic Stevie Bell who told me "it's a suspected broken collar bone".

Affy is currently being looked after in the local A+E. This a a big blow to the GB squad as Affy has been on super hot form recently and a hot favourite for the 4x win.

Is this why Italians are bad drivers?
