We are used to Sir Mike Cotty putting the hurt on us in the “On Location” videos but now Mike is suffering some pain himself as he crashed in Slovenia the day before yesterday and will have his collarbone screwed back together on Thursday. Not that this will slow him down, of course. He is his usual positive self and I am sure we all wish him a fast recovery!
@SirLeslieinCanada Tough news for Mike. Fortunately the recovery is fairly quick especially with surgery. I had a double break of my collar bone a few years ago.
“Fortunately” is doing a lot of work here…
So sorry @michael.cotty! Be well and heal quickly - maybe rub some goat spit on it.
Get well soon, @michael.cotty
Maybe sit down for a while too, take some weight off that collar bone
But best wishes for a speedy recovery.
Ditto! To all of the above.
Holy pain shakes batman. Get well soon @michael.cotty !
Oh no, heal up fast @michael.cotty and hope your bike is ok too!
Oh #@& that’s a good point. Did the bike get it? Tell us the bike is ok???
He joins those of us with at least one broken collarbone. He’ll heal quicker than I did as I wasn’t plated. Take things slowly and I hope there were no broken ribs to go with it.
Lastly, as others have said, “How is the bike”?
I second, and third, that one. Thankfully I’ve never had a broken collar bone, but plenty of cracked ribs from rugby injuries, and 5 broken ones last year from a crash. Just. Don’t. Sneeze.
Oh dear, please get well soon, @michael.cotty!
Best wishes for a quick recovery!
Enjoy the cookies and fruit while you recover @michael.cotty
Sorry to hear about the collarbone. Fit folk heal fast.
All the best for op and recovery.
Not just me then 6 broken ribs (flail breaks no less) and a fractured pelvis here (my acid tablet and inferior pubic rami). Raced loads this year with no problems, and I crash during a slow Sunday bimble…
Going to be a few weeks off the bike and a slow recovery
Oh no, and welcome to the “I’m bionic” club. Heal fast @michael.cotty! Best advice is to move it as much as you can as soon as you can. You’ll heal quicker and it’ll feel better in the long run as you break up the scar tissue that tries to form.
Ouch -get well soon @michael.cotty
This is The Way Out!
For you Sir @michael.cotty!
Thank you all so much! Surgery went well today. Holy shizzle, whatever is in that general anaesthetic, now that’s how to sleep! Back on it and riding with you all again soon. Peace out
Heal quickly, @michael.cotty . I was ‘fortunate’ not not need the knife. However, your recovery period will be way shorter than two months and a lot less painful. Welcome to the ‘club’.
Honestly, looking at this picture I have to be far more careful with the bottled bronze fake tan in the future
Fast recovery and nice it all went well with the surgery! All the best.
