Cedric Gracia, has broken his hip during training for the Val di Sole World Cup race this weekend. Gracia, 34, crashed hard in practice and has been taken to the hospital in Trento for surgery. We wish him a speedy recovery - heal up quick Cedric!
According to his Facebook page
:''Cedric a été victime d'une chute ce matin à Val Di Sole, il a été transféré à l'hospital de Trento et il vient de sortir du bloc opératoire. Le bassin cassé mais il reste à faire des examens. On vous informera dès que nous avons d'autres nouvelles.''
This roughly translates as: Cedric was the victim of a fall this morning in Val Di Sole, he was transferred to the hospital of Trento and he just left the operating room. His pelvis is broken but he needs further examination. You will be notified as soon as we have more news.
