Bad crash for Wooldridge

Olympic team pursuit gold medallist Steve Wooldridge has had a serious crash in a tour race in France on Friday. The Australian was on a descent when he crashed and broke his jaw in five places. Wooldridge lost several teeth and was transferred from France to Cologne after seeking practical medical advice.

He will be undergoing a major surgery and will also require wiring of the jaw in a week's time. His wife Danielle is on her way to be with him as he will be laid up in hospital for some time.
