Tour of Missouri: Blake Caldwell update


Sep052008_0532As we mentioned yesterday, a frightening accident involving Blake Caldwell dampened the excitement of Team Garmin’s stellar efforts in the Tour of Missouri individual time trial. According to VeloNews, Caldwell "exited the race in an ambulance when his front tire blew out on the course’s fastest corner, off a descent. After breaking through this year with a stage win and second overall at the Tour of Utah and second in a photo finish to Tyler Hamilton at the national road championship, Caldwell’s season ended in Branson with a broken clavicle, a broken sternum, a fracture to his iliac wing (hip bone) and minor lung contusions."

The official statement on Slipstream’s site assures us that Blake "is currently in stable condition at an area hospital, where he will remain for observation." As our thoughts go out to Blake and his family, our cheers head eastward, where the rest of Team Garmin just began its 105-mile trek from Lebanon to Rolla. Stay tuned for updates!
