Porte suffers broken collarbone and pelvis in Tour de France crash

Written by Jing Yan on . Posted in Blog / News

Richie Porte (BMC) and Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) both crashed out of the Tour De France and sustained fractures of their collarbones (clavicle). Le Tour will be a lot less exciting with these 2 riders out. We wish them both a speedy recovery.

Broken collarbone, collarbone dislocation and collarbone injuries are common in athletes when a sizeable force is directed onto the tip of the shoulder, usually because of a fall onto the shoulder.

Athletes who engage in sports like cycling, roller blading, skiing, snowboarding, and skate boarding are prone to such injuries.
