Last Thursday, Sylvain Chavanel took a fall while he was training with his MTB around Font Romeu, in France.
“I was having a good time, off-roading with my bike,” explained Chava, “when on a certain downhill stretch my front tire slipped on a rock. I fell and hit my face, but luckily I was more scared than hurt by the fall. I took a few days’ break for aches and pains until Sunday, but this morning I was already back out training. Luckily, everything turned out all right; the effects could have been much more severe.”
