Dalcin faces more surgery from Beaver Creek crash

According to the FIS Alpine website 33 year-old French skier Pierre Emmanuel Dalcin faces additional surgery after sustaining a double knee injury in downhill training at Beaver Creek last season.

Dalcin crashed in a controversial training run Dec. 5, 2009. The run had been started early in the day and French coaches said Dalcin’s crash was a direct result of the early morning light. He had double knee and shoulder surgery and had a second operation on one knee after infection set in. Now he is preparing for a second shoulder surgery, Aug. 30, by Dr. Nove-Josserand at Lyon.

“I saw him there a few weeks ago. My shoulder is too unstable and there are two tendons to suture, so I’m forced to have it redone”said Dalcin, the last Frenchman to win a World Cup downhill (at Val d’Isere, France in January 2007). He additionally said his struggle with knee pain prevents him from planning plan too far into the future.^
