From CyclingNews: Andy Schleck was involved in a collision with a car on Saturday but came away with no more than bruising. The Tour de France podium finisher was training at home in Luxembourg after spending Christmas with his family. Schleck was out on his bike and en route to meet his older brother Frank for a training ride.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“A car crossed in my path and pulled right across me. I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t avoid the crash,Ã¢â‚¬Â he added. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have the speed on but I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t avoid it.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Schleck estimated that he was travelling at roughly 35 kilometres per hour when the collision occurred. According to Schleck the car came off worse. Ã¢â‚¬Å“There was more damage on the car. His door was a wreck and so was his bumper,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“The passenger window and the front window were smashed too.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Schleck saw a physiotherapist later in the day, confirming that while nothing was broken he could return to cycling on Monday.
