American Superhero Lawson Craddock fights on despite fractured shoulder

Lawson Craddock (EF - Drapac) ran into some bad luck on stage 1 of the Tour. The American wearing unlucky number 13, crashed badly at the feedstation half way through the opening 200 km stage.

Craddock dropped back to the team car and got medical treatment as his team encouraged to carry on. Bleeding from a bad cut to the head and a ripped jersey Craddock fought back and hung at the back of the peloton for the remaining 100 kms.

He went on to finish the stage 1 dead last, 7 minutes and 50 seconds behind the leaders. Craddock said “We’ll have to see how I feel tonight and maybe get on the bike in the morning just to give it a feel.”

Craddock Fights On

Tests conducted in the evening revealed a broken line on the scapula . This injury usually requires rest, but the American  Superhero Craddock decided to fight on.

He will go beyond the pain. It remains to be seen how long he will be able to continue given his physical state.
