Wout Poels

I love hearing about stories that exhibit riders who overcome some pretty big obstacles and still make it back to where they were or even exceed their previous standards. In the 2012 Tour - Vacansoleil rider Wout Poels suffered major injuries from a crash in the 6th stage; broken ribs, ruptured spleen, damaged kidneys. Six months later he made the top 10 in the Tirreno-Adriatico.
