Phil Anderson breaks collarbone, ribs in cycling accident

by CyclingTips

Phil Anderson, the first non-European and first Australian to wear the yellow jersey at the Tour de France, was airlifted to a hospital after a heavy fall during a training ride.

On his Facebook page, Anderson wrote, “It’s been a tough day in the office. Sitting up and feeling great after a rough training ride. For the first time in my career I have a broken collarbone and broken every rib on my left side. All things considered, not bad and I can’t remember a thing.”

Anderson wore the yellow jersey for the first time at the 1981 Tour de France, and wore it again 1982 for nine days. He also won a stage in 1982, as well as the white jersey for best young rider. He finished fifth overall in the general classification in 1982, and again in 1985.
