It was me ! I knocked Down Bradley Wiggins

 

Van driver Cath Burrows has been identified as the lady who hit Olympic cycling hero Bradley Wiggins off his Bike.

Burrows apparently shrieked “Oh my God — I’ve just knocked over Bradley Wiggins!” after the accident.

The businesswoman ironically prefers motorbikes and owns a Porsche garage.

She repeatedly exclaimed “What have I done?” and allegedly told a friend “I just didn’t see him”, when she recalled hitting the Tour de France champion.

Wiggins, 32, was hospitalised after suffering bruised ribs but discharged yesterday afternoon, brandishing his middle finger at photographers as he was driven away.

A spokeswoman for British Cycling said: “It is extremely rare that our riders and coaches are hurt while out cycling on the road, even rarer that two incidents should occur in a short space of time, and we wish Shane and Bradley a speedy recovery.”

Team Sky used its twitter account to update everybody on the situation ;

Bradley Wiggins is making good progress after his crash & has released this statement thanking fans for their support.

Team Sky Statement 

Following further examination Team Sky’s medical staff can confirm that as well as bruising he also has a fractured rib, a bruised lung and a dislocated finger.

These injuries are being monitored and he will make a full and speedy recovery.

A Team Sky spokesperson said: “Bradley has already recovered from a mild head injury which required overnight observation in hospital on Wednesday.

“The swelling in his dislocated finger has also reduced and will not require surgery, and he will undergo further X-rays on his fractured rib on Monday.

“He’s convalescing at home with his family and is expected to make a full recovery in a short period of time.”

 Thank you

Bradley Wiggins said today: “I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and messages over the last 48 hours, and of course all the staff at the Royal Preston Hospital who looked after me so well.

“Although I’m still a little bit sore I will now be spending time at home with my family and concentrating on making a full recovery.

“I would also like to apologise for the gesture that I made when I arrived home yesterday afternoon. I was tired, in a lot of pain, and just wanted to get inside, but I shouldn’t have reacted the way I did. I’m sorry for that.

“I’m looking forward to getting back on the bike soon and continuing my preparations for the 2013 season.”

Sutton update

Team Sky’s head coach Shane Sutton was also knocked off his bike on Thursday morning and taken to hospital suffering a fractured cheekbone and bleeding on the brain.

A spokesperson for British Cycling said: “Shane is making steady progress but is likely to remain in hospital for one more day under observation.

“He has fractured his cheekbone which will require surgery in due course. He, like Bradley, is expected to make a complete recovery and will be back in work shortly.”
