Not quite! From http://www.slippensstam.nl/nieuws.php?id=71

Tue 29 Aug 2006, "Schaal Sels" classic, Merksem, Belgium. Slippens was
forced off the road but still on his bike. When he jumped back, there
happened to be a post right there in the gutter. Ten broken ribs,
collarbone in 4 pieces, and a collapsed lung. Had to remain in the IC
for quite a while.
Sep 4, his wife gave birth to his daughter when Robert was still in the IC.
Sep 12, Robert posts a message to his website from the hospital.
Oct 16, Robert shot the starting pistol at the opening of the Amsterdam
Six. He has had a few physio therapy sessions by now.

Holy ****, that's a lot of broken bones. Certainly more than Nelissen broke when
doing essentially the same thing (hitting a post), but I'd bet Slippens makes it
back to successfully racing.
