Ouch.

That's a big ouch!

Shows how frail you can be at 80kph.

What did he break, or better yet, what didn't he beak?

Brooker's injuries from this crash were four torn ligaments in an already damaged knee, retina damage to one of his eyes (his seeing was impaired for months), and a serious concussion. He never raced again.

This mishap actually ocurred during a training run at Kitzbuhel, which is considered the most dangerous downhill course on the skiing circuit. Brooker actually won the event in 1983.

Brooker grew up in Waterloo, Ontario, not far from where I live.
