Denis Lynch with two broken ribs

Tuesday, 15 May 2012

Denis has two broken ribs after his fall on Saturday. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.After a second check with a German doctor yesterday, Denis Lynch was found to be suffering from two broken ribs. After his win in the La Baule Derby on Saturday, Denis Lynch had a bad fall off Night Train during their lap of honor. The first medical examination in France revealed no injuries, and it was thought that bruises and several swellings – as well as some stitches in the arm and the head – were the lucky escape of the fall. Unfortunately for Denis, the second examination proved the situation to be a little worse.


At the moment Denis is in a lot of pain, but the doctors are trying to get the Irish rider fit for Saturday so he at least can jump the third leg of the Global Champions Tour in Hamburg. Denis will definitely not ride the Hamburg Derby. We wish Denis a speedy recovery!
