Part of pro sports is injury management. We might think riders are “injury free” but I’ll bet a lot of them are nursing some nagging injury most of the time. As the athlete ages those injuries add up and it becomes harder to perform at the top level. I would not rule AG out of another good season of high placing but still, this season was full of hard luck and too many injuries. Sometimes I think a coach or trainer needs to tell an athlete to let it rest. I know sometimes athletes will go for second and third opinions until the opinion is go for it. I think Vonn did that a few years back and blew her knee again because she was not ready.
