|A woman and two men are rushing towards a parked car on a mountain road. The word ‘Doctor’ is inscribed on their shirts. The words ‘Medical Assistance’ are inscribed on the car. They jump hastily inside — the men in the front, the woman in the back. Her name is Elena. She is speaking Italian.
“The one that started off again did not seem too well,” she says. “And all in the same spot. A real mess.”The driver accelerates. A police outrider joins them and flicks a siren. They are racing down the mountain at speed.
An internal radio is cackling with information. The second doctor, Massimo, has reached for the handset. “The only one put in the ambulance is an Orica rider with a broken collarbone,” he says. http://www.raidersnflofficialproshop.com/YOUTH+ALDON+SMITH+JERSEY “All the others got up and carried on.”
“Thanks,” the controller replies. “What’s the number of the Orica rider?”“I think 152. I’m not quite sure but I’ll let you know.”Horns are blaring. They have almost reached the cavalcade and Elena is biting her lip. She looks tense. Anxious. They’ve been informed of another incident. “Shall I go?” the driver asks.
The second scene. A balding, unshaven man is squatting with http://www.dolphinsfootballofficialproshop.com/Kenny-Stills-Jersey.html a weight between his arms in a http://www.officialminnesotawild.com/Adidas-Charlie-Coyle-Jersey desolate country yard. It’s almost spring. The fields are dusted with snow. We see him power-jumping on some tyres, lifting heavy weights and climbing bare-footed across some rocks towards an icy mountain stream.
He removes his watch and sits bare-chested in the flow. He breathes in deeply and rubs his Authentic P.K Subban Jersey hands. And breathes in deeply and rubs his hands. A thin smile breaks across his face. He’s at one with his world. At peace. Content.
A man in a grey T-shirt is rocking back and forth on the edge of a hospital bed. His right arm and knee are covered in bandages. He finds a spot on the wall to stare at and tries to lift his left arm. It is broken. The camera is on his face now. He is lying back in the bed and reliving what happened.
“The other riders rode over me and it was . . . (pauses). The first thing I thought was, ‘Oh, David Sharpe Jersey no. My Giro d’Italia is over.’ The second was, ‘Man, maybe I hurt my arm!’ Now, I laugh, but I didn’t back then. It was a strange thing. Because it happened so fast. It took me ages to get there, and only three-four seconds to lose it.
“When you go for a sprint, you’re not really aware of people as you’re going so fast. You hear, ‘Haaa . . . aaa . . . !’ There are sounds around you but you don’t understand much. I still remember one great moment. When I was so low on the ground that I couldn’t see anything, I closed my eyes in pain.
“I couldn’t Jake Matthews Womens Jersey see the crowds, so many people! But I remember one thing — when they pulled me onto the stretcher, there was an applause that lasted until I got into the ambulance. Then I really felt that the public was shocked by what had happened. And it was so emotional.
“I remember when I got up . . . a big round of applause! It was as if I had won but I was going to the Bruno Caboclo Jersey ambulance.” wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys from china cheap jerseys
