    Cedric Gracia seriously injured at Val di Sol

    On June 1, Cedric Gracia hit a tree during World Cup DH practice in Val di Sol, Italy. He sustained injuries to his femur and hip. Details are sparse but it looks like they are still trying to stabilize him and surgery has not yet occured to repair the damage.

    From Facebook:
    It's been three days that Cedric is hospitalized in Trento, for now the news arenít good because he is losing blood in the fractures, so he isnít in condition to be transferred somewhere. Cedric is very touched by your post whether sponsors or fans, without forget his family and friends.

    Sorry to hear this.
    I have no doubt they'll be able to repair the damage, I just wonder how long it will take for his recovery and what this means for him in the future.

    Best wishes for the best results with this!

    Cedric Gracia interview:
    Sounds like he's on his way to recovery, but I'm guessing it's going to be a long road ahead.

    The right name is Val di Sole, it means Sun Valley. To tell the truth usually it is an alpine valley with little sun and lot of rain, probably the name helps the tourism...
