Photo Of Bloodied Joel Stransky, Following Cycling Crash

Story from: 2oceansvibe.com

No, I’ll never tire of that photo above.

Those were happier times for Stranners, though, who suffered a pretty horrific bike crash during the 2017 Absa Cape Epic yesterday.

The 49-year-old former flyhalf was riding the 26km Prologue stage at Meerendal Wine Estate when it all went south, his crash resulting in a broken rib and a punctured lung.

Oh, and a rather bloody face, too. Here’s the image tweeted out by the Arrive Alive account:

Not lekker at all.

This below from Stuff:

The event was Stransky’s eighth Cape Epic and he was being partnered by former Sharks centre Jeremy Thomson, also 49, in the Grand Masters category.

After the fall Stransky joked online that he would need plastic surgery to save his good looks.

Good luck with the recovery, pal, and thanks for ’95.
