The Australian formula one driver Mark Webber says he has no intention of giving up mountain biking despite breaking his shoulder part way through the season.

Webber was leading the Formula One championship when he suffered the injury and drove the last four races of the season with it but kept it secret from his Red Bull team.

It's was his second mountain bike accident having broken a leg and fractured a shoulder two years ago and Red Bull team boss Christian Horner has urged him to give it up but Webber says that won't happen.
