Concussed cyclist narrowly avoids deadly collision with riders on Tour of California

17 May 2017

A Latvian cyclist named Toms Skujins suffered a pretty serious crash while speeding down a curvy hill in Stage 2 of the AMGEN Tour Of California race yesterday.

Following his fall, cameras caught a heavily disoriented Skujins attempting to get back on his bike, almost colliding with multiple members of the peloton. Clearly disorientated and struggling to find his balance, Skujins can be seen attempting to pick his bike up from the road and continue with the race.

The 25-year-old shouldn't have been allowed to get back on his bike after the crash, yet he was allowed to ride on by a neutral service mechanic.

More U.S., NY workers, job seekers test positive for drugs
Alcohol is not part of the report because the most effective testing is blood and breath, which is not part of the index format. Alabama and OR have more workers testing positive for illicit drug use than any other states - but for different reasons.

A Cannondale-Drapac team auto eventually caught up to the Latvian and pulled him out of the race, but not before viewers had expressed their shock and concern.

The team say Skujins is now following their internal concussion protocol and will be "monitored closely".

Cannondale-Drapac sports director Tom Southam told BBC Sport: "Toms' crash obviously had a huge impact on us today".

Sanchez Energy Corp (NYSE:SN) & Activision Blizzard, Inc
Activision Blizzard, Inc. (ATVI ) has a market capitalization of 42.32 Billion while its Major Index membership is at S&P 500. The company reported $0.27 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, beating analysts' consensus estimates of $0.16 by $0.11.

"Toms instinctively continued riding but it was clear that he couldn't go on".

Skujins added that he was "feeling all right" and "healthy".

"Concussion recovery varies from person to person and from day to day". Skujins almost rode straight into a few curbs before he was ultimately pulled out of the race. He also tweeted a picture of himself in hospital with the message: "I would never suggest getting in a fight with tarmac because you will lose". "I'm good. We'll assess with the team doctors and figure things out moving forward".

Syria denies building crematory for political prisoners
