the percentage of those guys get right back up and are ok - percentage of people hitting trees that pop right back up?

I am not looking forward to crashing on pavement...it is not a matter of if...it is a matter of when - yikes

That happened Tuesday at Stage 3 of the Vuelta a Espana. Top American hopeful Chris Horner broke his wrist in that crash and is out of the race :(
