While his body was relatively unscathed, Condon’s beloved Canyon bike took the brunt of the accident, but the rider says his health is more important than his ride.
“Thanks to all the well wishers, a ride I would rather forget, but in light of the horrendous possibilities that could have been the outcome of this accident I count myself very lucky indeed,” Condon wrote on his Facebook page. “My beautiful Canyon will race no more, but I have my health which is not always retained after these accidents.
“I have had time to contemplate on what is important in life and will always appreciate my family, friends and cycling in that order.”
