2009 Wildflower Champion Virginia Berasategui hit by car!
Posted: Wednesday, February 24, 2010
Virginia Berasategui, the former 2009 Wildflower Champions, was riding her bike when she was hit by a car while training on the Baleraric Island of Mallorca. She was on a road cycling training session when a driver coming from the opposite direction swerved onto her lane and hit her.
Her injuries included cuts and contusions to her face and three knocked out teeth, however, the accident could have been a lot worse had she not been wearing her helmet. Her head also hit the windscreen of the on-coming car as it drove off.
We recently check in with her to see how she was doing. "I must say that I'm recovering faster than the doctors said,so I'm already thinking to back to training!...I have already my new provisional teeth,so I'm smiling again. I will be at the start of Abu-Dabhi, and of course, defending my Wildflower Championship!"
The TriCalifornia Staff wishes her a speedy complete recovery.
