We Need To Talk About Concussion | Learning From Brain Injury Experience

Published on February 16th 2020


Concussion is a hot topic in sport at the moment. But road cycling is often left out of the conversation, which tends to be far more focussed on contact team sports. Conor set out to open up the conversation around concussion with two riders who've experienced brain injuries, Ian Boswell - an American ex-professional road cyclist who suffered a brain injury when riding Tirreno-Adriatico, and Jack Hardwick - a rider who suffered a brain injury and who is now PhD student researching concussion. To find out more about how to approach managing a concussion check out the Concussion Legacy Foundation or Headway for support. https://concussionfoundation.org/PCS-resources https://www.headway.org.uk/ Check out the GCN App: https://gcn.eu/app Check out the GCN Shop: https://gcn.eu/366 Global Bike Festival early bird tickets available now: https://gcn.eu/365 Subscribe to GCN: http://gcn.eu/SubscribeToGCN Register your interest in the GCN Club: https://gcn.eu/364 #Cycling #GCN #RoadBike What are your thoughts on this conversation?
