Carlo Cudicini can remember everything, from the terrifying moment when he smashed into the side of the Ford Fiesta to the first thought that entered his head.

He wasn't dead. That was something. But as he lay there on the icy cold tarmac, fully conscious and just a few feet from the tangled wreckage of his motorbike, he was suddenly overcome by fear. The fear that he might have suffered some kind of paralysis.

Quickly he went through his own mental checklist. Could he move his neck? Could he wiggle his toes? Where did it hurt? It might not be game over but was his career over?
