Cyclists are notoriously tough and riders have been known to finish races with some quite serious injuries!

From broken collarbones to the ever common road rash, Sprouse discusses what he treats most commonly in the pro peloton. He shows us the dressings he uses for the riders and a super cool ultrasound scanner for checking bones. An inherently high-risk sport, cycling attracts a lot of injuries with many rider’s seasons being shaped by such problems. Luckily for us mortals, crashing is less common, but be sure to stay safe out there on the roads!
