The Outspoken Cyclist – 3/12/2011

The saying goes that there are two kinds of cyclists: those who have broken their collarbones, and those who will break their collarbone someday. Our first guest is Dr. Eric Richetti, an Orthopaedic surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic, specializing in repair of collarbone, shoulder and elbow injuries. Dr. Richetti describes common injuries to these bones and their preferred treatments.

Coming up next month in Monterey, California is the 21st annual Sea Otter Classic, a 4-day celebration of cycling that welcomes over 8,000 athletes and 49,000 fans. In the second half of this week’s show, Diane talks with Sea Otter Classic director, Jeff Frost. After you hear Jeff describe the event, you’ll definitely want to go, but if you can’t be there in person, you can follow the action online.

And this week we welcome the triumphant return of the cycling news and commentary. Hear what perspectives Diane and I can come up with on the week’s happenings in the cycling world.
