On Saturday, July 1, 2017 during the Flying 200m at Trexlertown, Stefan crashed when his front wheel hit the sponge in corner 4. The result was a concussion and broken collarbone.Thankfully, his recovery is progressing well!
As parents, we are so grateful to have him home and for him to be able to convalesce here in Edmonton with us. Seeing Stefan come through those security doors at the airport on July 4th, head hanging slightly and arm in a sling, was a touching moment for me as a mother.
Thanks to Cycling Canada Strength Coach Brendan Murphy for his care and bringing Stefan back to Milton, Ontario safely. Thanks to Lehigh Valley Hospital for their care in monitoring the concussion and to Dr. Neal Stansbury for surgical repair of the collarbone. Thanks also to the Cycling Canada Team and Medical staff, Dr. Eillot in particular, for their ongoing monitoring.
