Reigning Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins is currently recovering in a hospital after colliding with a car while riding his bicycle in England, according to a report from the Associated Press. Wiggins' injuries are not thought to be anything major - a few broken ribs and some cuts and bruises.

Wiggins was riding his bike in Wrightington when a car reportedly pulled out of a gas station in front of him. Wiggins enjoyed one of the most successful summers a cyclist has ever had, having won the 2012 Tour de France in addition to getting gold in the cycling event at the London Olympics.
