A Latvian cyclist named Toms Skujins suffered a pretty serious crash while speeding down a curvy hill in Stage 2 of the AMGEN Tour Of California race yesterday. As CBS 5 reports, along with the chopper footage above, Skujins wiped out on Quimby Road just below Mount Hamilton, and sustained a broken collarbone and a concussion in the process. But, as you can see, he gets up and goes to get back on his bike, even standing, dazed, a little too close to the race course as another group of cyclists go speeding past.
Skujins was racing for Cannondale-Drapac, and he did in fact race a bit further before officials decided to pull him off his bike.
A photo at the end of the video shows him in the hospital looking pretty banged up.
The course of Stage 2 started in Modesto and summited Mount Hamilton before finishing in San Jose, and it was won Monday by Poland’s Rafal Majka in 3 hours 43 minutes and 46 seconds.
