Injuries Simon had a heavy fall in the GP d'Ouverture la Marseillaise in France in February, 2006. He had surgery in a Nice hospital where a pin was inserted into his shattered left collarbone and a screw put into his broken right shoulder. He also had stitches in his head. He resumed training three weeks after the accident.
Other Simon has used some gruelling training techniques to reach the position he is in today. A few years ago, he taped lead weights to his wheels and climbed Mount Buller and Mount Hotham - two of Victoria, Australia's highest mountains - a couple of times a day to strengthen himself up.

He credits Australian Tour de France legend, Phil Anderson, as having taught him how to become a successful road racer.

He had a successful Tour de France in 2005 and finished third in Stage 17. He finished 126th overall in the Tour de France.
