Kona-VoiceStream’s Bart Bowen will be out of action for 12 weeks following a broken femur at the Monkey Hill Cyclo-Cross race. Bowen crashed on the second lap of the race, landing hard on a pavement section of the course. According to his team, the break in his bone occurred 4 inches below the head of his femur and will require surgery to insert a steel rod into his leg.
In a team release, Bowen said, “It’s amazing how fast it happened. One minute you’re having a blast and the next your whole world is upside down.”
The injury effectively ends Bowen’s cyclo-cross season, as the national championships in Baltimore are only eight weeks away, on December 15.
