Yukiya Arashiro goes down hard

As reported a few days ago ... but only seen by me this morning, Yukiya Arashiro got the worst of a pile-up during Liege-Bastogne-Liege.

"One mass crash with about 40 km to go took out a number of riders, and sent Europcar's Yukiya Arashiro to hospital with the most serious injuries."
"The Japanese rider lay on the ground a long time and was obviously in pain. It was later reported that he had broken ribs as well as either his humerus or scapula."

Ouch, Yukiya.  At least L'Equipe carries a photo tweeted by his partner/manager Miwa-san, which has him still smiling that infectious Arashiro grin!
Get well soon, Yukiya.
