Even an experienced cyclist like Six time Ironman world champion Dave Scott can get struck by car while cycling. While riding in his home town of Boulder, Colorado, Ironman Champion Dave Scott was hit by a car while on a training ride. Witness at the scene of the accident report that Scott was conscious and talking after being struck, and that it looked to them like the car accident had potentially broken Scott’s collar bone or separated his shoulder with other multiple cuts on his legs and arms. News reports indicate that the bike crash took place as he was riding down a hill and a car suddenly made a U-turn in his path. The motorist was from out of town and was looking at real estate signs.

According to a biker who came on the scene shortly after the crash, the champion triathlete put two massive dents in the driver’s side door. he was taken to the hospital. Witnesses at the scene also report that Scott was well taken care of by both emergency services and fellow cyclist. Since 1999, Dave has served as head triathlon coach for Team In Training. I have met and spoken to Scott at the Columbia and DC Nations Triathlons. He is personable, with a ready sense of humor and an athlete who lives what he preaches. I hope that he has a full and complete recovery from this bike crash.
