Ericsson fit to race after bicycle crash

Marcus Ericsson is bruised and battered but fit to race in Malaysia this weekend.

The Sauber driver confirmed reports on Twitter that he suffered a high speed cycling accident during a training camp in Thailand last week.

"Lucky to get away with only bruises and scratches," said the Swede, posting photos of himself covered with cuts and scrapes and a bent bicycle wheel.

"Hitting a (big) chicken doing 45kph is not recommended but I'm all patched up and ready for the weekend," Ericsson added.

He said the chicken escaped unscathed.
