    Our thoughts go to Alexis Rhodes (20) who is in a critical condition with head and internal injuries after a horrific traffic accident in Germany. Ranked 88 in the world for road cycling competition, she was hoping for a Commonwealth Games selection.

    I feel for those girls and their families...the recovery from Road Trauma is long, arduous and sometimes never-ending.


    I hope they all have good long-term outcomes.
