Richie McCaw suffers 'nasty fall' during cycling tour

Rugby legend Richie McCaw took a bit of a tumble from his bike during the 5 Passes Tour. 

The tour is a four-day cycling trek through the South Island through the Alpine Village of Hanmer Springs, Greymouth, and Arthur's Pass, circling back to Christchurch - supported by a team of over 20 crew members.

It sounds like a pretty stellar adventure with heaps of scenic landscapes, right? 

The challenging terrain took an unexpected turn for Richie, though, as he suffered a nasty injury after making a close acquaintance with the pavement after falling off his bike. 

McCaw's wife, Jemma, took to Instagram to share the aftermath of the tumble. 

"I'm on wound cleaning after a nasty fall,"

After the cleaning thought, she took to searching for any broken ribs, and it looked PAINFUL! 

"And trying to diagnose a broken rib." 

Hopefully he has a speedy recovery ahead of him!
