– I did not go too fast (…). Two riders in front of me were inoculated with wheels, knocked inside them and threw myself on the sidewalk and a peloton hit me in the back – says Szurkowski in an interview with Przegląd Sportowy. As he explains – "the upper jaw broke in three parts, the eyes hung on the strings at first".
After a series of treatments, he moved to the Dortmund rehabilitation center. He then moved to a special center in Konstancin, where people with injuries are being restored. The problem is that the longer stay lasts 16 weeks there and our broken cyclist is already training there for 13 weeks. Then he would like to move to a private clinic in Kamień Pomorski. an extracurricular that would help Szurkowski reach his feet more quickly.
The biggest problem is quadriplegia at the moment. Fortunately, regular exercises bring results.
Restoration, however, is costly, so the collection is for the master.

Doctors said he had a heart for cycling
excerpts from Wojciech Koerber (2009)
Ryszard Szurkowski is our man from Świebodzin near Milicz. She started cycling, among other things under the influence of Peace, later becoming her legend.
– At first, I did not think I would become a great gentleman. The Peace Race, however, is infected by curiosity. In addition, May is hot and the sun is high, so man becomes active. Therefore, one wanted to imitate Króllak and others – three times a world champion told us a few years ago.
– From my village there were many such boys who first came to LZS Milicz. However, it is difficult to talk about a performance here. He asked for a tube, a shirt or shorts that had been waiting for them for months.
Who survived, stayed. When I signed up for Dolmelu Wrocław, my vintage children were already in the peace race. For example, Zenek Czechowski from Poznan – added the legendary cyclist.
