Fabien Barel will be back soon - [look away if you don't like blood!]

You've all seen the Crashed! section on the reader's photos part of the MBUK site, Fabien Barel could add himself to it.

Fabien hasn't taken part in the past two world cup events in Canada and Brazil; he was filming for the next New World Disorder Movie in Italy when he crashed and cut his arm very badly, resulting in 28 stitches with 15 of those on the muscle.

After being stitched back up he couldn't ride 100% so decided to have physiotherapy to be on top form for the Worlds in New Zealand, which starts on 22 August 2006.

Fabien's next event will be at the Nordic Finnish Championships in the Kona Bike Park of Levi, Finland on the 22nd/23rd July.
