“Forgot how much breaking bones hurts. 4 ribs and a collarbone”

O’Grady said that the series of serious accidents he has had in his cycling career have probably cost him up to 20 broken bones in total. 

The most serious of his career was during the 2011 Tour De France when he crashed out of a 90km/h decent. 

O’Grady fractured 8 ribs, his shoulder, three vertebrae, his collarbone and punctured his lung in the accident on the Cormet de Roselend.
