*Whiplash is not just a car accident injury! * Read on...

Mark Cavendish suffered concussion and whiplash in a low-speed crash that caused him to abandon the Abu Dhabi Tour after less than five kilometres, his team has announced.

Cavendish crashed in the neutral zone as the riders rolled out towards the official start of the WorldTour race, falling to the tarmac along with four other riders in a crash that appeared to be caused by the race director’s car suddenly braking sending a ripple effect back through the bunch.

The Manx sprinter received medical attention while sitting on the road, and remounted his bike before abandoning and climbing into the team car after the first five kilometres of the stage.

From there Cavendish was taken to hospital for check-ups, with doctors ruling out any more serious injury to his neck.

“Mark sustained a concussion and a whiplash injury after his crash today,” said Dr Adrian Rotunno, Dimension Data‘s team doctor, in a statement after the race.

“Due to the concussion, we were not willing to risk rider safety and the call was made for Mark to stop the race. A serious neck injury has been excluded in hospital.

“He currently has some concussive symptoms and neck pain, but is otherwise stable. We will monitor Mark’s condition closely going forward.”

Concussion has been a rarely discussed topic in professional cycling, although it was received considerable attention at the Tour of California last year when Toms Skujins rode for a few kilometres after shocking images showed him stumbling over, struggling to maintain his balance and remount his bike following a heavy crash.

ALBANY - New York will study whether it's plausible to legalize marijuana for recreational use as neighboring states move ahead with it, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday.

Cuomo called on lawmakers to approve funding for a feasibility study as part of his annual state budget address, in which he laid out his spending proposal for the coming year.

Joint Pain Expected in The Winter Season


Motion is lotion. Motion helps reduce the risk for osteoarthritis. It both lubricates and nourishes your knees.

Camel up. Drink plenty of water. Drying out reduces flexibility and increases wear and tear. On average, you need to drink eight glasses of water (eight ounces each) each day. When you exercise, you will need substantially more water to balance fluid loss.

**"Good" pain.** A little discomfort may occur and will lessen after regular exercise. But watch for "bad" pain. Stop if you have more severe, sharp pain, especially if you are limping.

Get strong. Do leg lifts that strengthen your quadriceps (front thigh) muscle, which is the main protector of your knee.

Warm up, then stretch. Break a light sweat, then stretch to help maintain mobility and reduce joint stiffness.

Stay warm. Knees are like barometers and cold, damp weather can make them more symptomatic. Try keeping your knees warm with a neoprene sleeve or knee wrap.

Chill out. Ice your knees for 15 minutes after activity or exercise if you tend to develop soreness.

Eat for healthy joints. Lose extra pounds to take stress of your knees. Avoid sugary, processed food, as well as foods high in saturated fat, in order to minimize inflammation.

Lube job for your knees. For osteoarthritis, surgeons often use viscosupplementation to lubricate, and improve cushioning properties of the knee. Ask your doctor if you are a candidate.
