I've e-mailed this letter to the comic twice as a letter of thanks but its not been published yet:
I was interested to read of Wouter Sybrandy's road to recovery not least because of my own serious head injury back in August due to a crash in a local league race. And yes, the helmet probably saved my life but did not prevent the double fracture in my skull. The road to recovery has involved two major operations and a slow road with help from wonderful physiotherapists and a devoted wife for support at home Has anyone else suffered problems with balance after a head injury - that is the slowest thing to improve, something that you take for granted on your bike.and a bit of a worry because I certainly took my balance for granted as you do.
I need to thank profusely the generosity of all the local cyclists and clubs who donated money for me to get fresh kit such as a new helmet so THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH and especially for all the good wishes as well,[including you again Laura!]
