Not so much that he got hit by a car but the honest thoughts he wrote in his blog about it.

Ugh. My biggest fear is cars when I am on a bike. Or maybe the big logging trucks that blow past me at 75 mph. I just pull over now when I hear them coming, and let them pass. I am totally paranoid, and since I will never be winning an Olympic medal, I am willing to lose the training edge.

Thank you for sharing - I feel less cowardly now,
Nancy

I see so many cyclists biking on these busy roads... I do not have the guts to do so. I rather drive to a more remote location and ride. So many folks on their cell phones these days...dagone

Seems like he will be ok... time will tell if this derails his Kona preparation. As long as the damage is not too bad he may benefit from the rest. At least it was not a hit and run this time. ... sent a goodwill tweet and he seemed to like it..

I thought he was in a medically induced coma?? With brain stem damage?? That is what the papers have.

I think that's the other guy he mentioned in his blog - Dale Stetina.  Good wishes to both.

Oh, yes, sorry. I got confused. You are right. That is Dale, the professional biker. Thank goodness this biker was OK. Very good writing, also.

A few years ago Jordan was actually within inches of his life in another crash. So I was very attentive when seeing this headline at first.

Yeah...given Jordan's prior crash, I don't think I've ever been so relieved to hear that a cyclist "only" ate crap, got really bad road rash, and probably doesn't have anything broken.
