Simon Richardson Update (28/8/11)

Members of Bolton, North Cheshire and Stockport Clarion
Simon has been bought out of sedation today and the ventilator has also been removed which has been assisting his breathing.   Medical staff want to see how his breathing can function unaided, so fingers crossed this afternoon that progress can be made.  His condition remains critical but stable.

Today, members of Bolton, North Cheshire and Stockport Clarion cycling clubs showed their support for Simon.  Posing to re-create a photo taken over eighty years ago for their club magazine, it was a perfect opportunity to hold up the "We're riding for #SIMONSTRONG" poster.  Over forty members were represented - keep the support coming folks.

Note to Press; Simon Richardson is a double-gold Paralympic cyclist.  On the track in Bejing 2008 he won the LC3/4 1km time trial and 3km individual pursuit. He also claimed a silver in the road time trial and assisted team mate Darren Kenny to victory in the road race.  Further details can be found on his Wikipedia page.
