Sam Blenkinsop breaks his fibula
Very sad/bad news here for Lapierre International star Sam Blenkinsop, he's out with a broken leg.
Here's word from Blenky himself on his Facebook page, "I broke my fibula bone in my ankle on Friday, slipped down a steep hill and it cracked!"
I did the same thing sledging in the dark two years ago! He has to be looking at six weeks in plaster and then some recovery time. The first round of the World Cup in South Africa is nine weeks, so I would imagine he will be back on it then, but will he be up to full speed? Maybe the rest will do him good! Get well soon.
