According to procycling.no it is the bone in the hand that is inside of the longest finger.

Anyway... my reaction is: BUMMER BUMMER BUMMER BUMMER  :S  :angry

Halvorsen breaks a finger. Hoelgaard escapes serious injury but is a bit bashed up. EBH has his gall bladder removed. I'm sensing a pattern.

Doesn't sound as if any of the DNFs were too badly hurt in San Juan, however they kept Gaviria and Escuela under observation overnight and will perform a few more scans today.

Or Woman Down.

Felt sorry for Jolanda Neff at the weekend.

Came down with PFP but looked to have done better out of it than the Frenchwoman. In fact the doctors concluded the opposite was true.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79ZjbhdRXEI

Horrible to hear the pain with the microphone so close to them both. PFP was on a charge going into this descent but could not hold the bike at that angle.

Neff surely did represent a serious podium prospect for this weekend's CX Worlds.

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/neff-out-of-cyclo-cross-world-championships-after-hoogerheide-crash-womens-news-shorts/

Get well soon, Jolanda.

It was a sad case to watch, it started with a bit of a misunderstanding as I saw it, wit PFP not really aware that Neff was moving below her when she started slipping. Then, given the moderate speed and soft ground - two broken bones? Could hardly turn out worse :(

This. That was certainly a technical descent but you'd have thought hardly likely to cause that sort of injury. The speed they came into it though ...  it is true what folks say that CX looks slower on TV. I used to live right next to the course of the Druivencross, where PFP won late last year, and it is insane how fast they took the muddy descents there. It just doesn't look so crazy on camera.

Fractured collarbone for #sunweb Wilco Kelderman  :(
Team doctor Chris Jansen says it will be more complex than a normal collarbone fracture because Wilco has broken the same  collarbone before and there are some pieces of metal in there. Wilco will go back to Netherlands for further examinations and surgery.

That's so far the end of a lot of bad luck for #sunweb. Are they still using slippery tires?

#quickstep Gaviria is out for MSR after the crash in Tirreno today, by the look of it

Quote
"One part of the bone has moved over another part. It needs to be put back in place. He’ll need surgery to reduce the fracture and fix it in in place.

"To make a full recovery he’ll need at least four weeks. It’ll be difficult for him to ride before that, the fracture needs time to stabilize."

Scary experience for Dani Martinez #efd, who was attacked by an aggressive driver yesterday, and is in the hospital. The physical injuries don't appear to be too bad but he is suffering from amnesia :(

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/daniel-martinez-in-hospital-after-motorist-attack/
Quote
Martinez is coached former rider Michele Bartoli.

"There was some kind of altercation with a motorist while the guys were out training," Bartoli told Cyclingnews.

"I've called Dani, he seems OK and he recognised my voice but admitted that he can't remember anything from the last few months, including his recent good ride at the Volta a Catalunya or his move from Wilier to EF Education First. He’s in hospital for further checks."

talking about amnesia... some may remember Vandenbergh's heavy crash last year

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/vandenbergh-leaves-hospital-after-two-weeks/

he had a concussion back then and it also was said that he was suffering from amnesia - but I was a bit shocked to read this in an interview with Oliver Naesen in Het Nieuwsblad this morning:

Quote
Vansummeren: "[...] Oli. Have you already watched YouTube videos from the latest Round editions?"

Naesen: "Not yet. That is work for Saturday. Together with my roommate Stijn Vandenbergh we go back in time together. Stijn now forgets all trajectories. "

Vansummeren: "Seriously? Is not Stijn a boy of the region? "

Naesen: "I think he has become so oblivious since his fall last year. [...]"

___________________________________________________________________

Oli. Heb je al YouTubefilmpjes bekeken van de laatste Ronde-edities?”

Naesen: “Nog niet. Dat is werk voor zaterdag. Samen met mijn kamergenoot Stijn Vandenbergh gaan we samen terug in de tijd. Stijn vergeet tegenwoordig alle trajecten.”

Vansummeren: “Serieus? Stijn is toch een jongen van de streek?”

Naesen: “Ik denk hij zo vergeetachtig is geworden sinds zijn val van vorig jaar

Terrible accident at San Sebastian, with 20 km to go, for both Egan Bernal and Mikel Landa.  :(

https://twitter.com/TeamSky/status/1025778938386243584

Egan Bernal crashed out of contention in the closing stages of Clasica San Sebastian and has been taken to hospital for checks. (https://www.teamsky.com/article/bernal-crashes-out-of-san-sebastian?utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=referral)

Quote
Medical update: Egan suffered a serious facial trauma. He is awake and talking. He has had a precautionary scan to assess for further injuries which revealed a nasal fracture and maxillary injury.

He will be assessed by maxillofacial specialists and will be staying overnight for observation and further treatment.

This seems to have been under-reported, unless I just missed it.

Associated Press - Jul 31, 2018

MILAN — Vincenzo Nibali will return to training in a few days after undergoing back surgery following a crash in the Tour de France.

Nibali broke his 10th vertebra on the famous climb up to Alpe d’Huez on July 19 when a fan caught their camera strap on his handlebars.

The Bahrain Merida team says its 33-year-old rider “has undergone a successful surgery” at the La Madonnina clinic in Milan.

The statement on Tuesday adds that the operation “consisted of the injection of biocompatible cement into the body of the vertebra.”

Nibali will be released on Wednesday and can return to training on a static bike in a few days. He will then resume training on the road with an eye on the Spanish Vuelta, starting Aug. 25, as well as the World Championships road race on Sept. 30.

Nibali won the Tour de France in 2014 and the Giro d’Italia twice, in 2013 and 2016. He won the Vuelta in 2010.

Cav takes extended / open ended break - still suffering from Epstein Barr virus:

https://www.bbc.com/sport/cycling/45340482


Personally I hope there is a way back for the manx missile - but this really could be the beginning of the end?

Sentimentally I was hoping that he might get a kind of 'pay per ride' one year world tour deal for 2019 to give him another crack at TDF stages, before deciding if 2020 would be a road or Olympic track farewell... clearly he needs to be clear of this debilitating virus before assessing his next moves.

Kristina Vogels confirms that she is paralysed after a crash in training in June
This one hit home hard for me. :'(

Only seven months ago, she and Maximilian Levy were entertaining the press conference room at the Berlin Sixdays while we were waiting for the overall winners to get changed etc. and make their way over.
Relaxed, in 'civilian' clothes, joking with the journalists and each other, answering questions about the track Worlds, the German cycling federation, and the Tokyo Olympics. :(

But, having experienced her there and in competition, I think that she is on her way back up now. Going public with it this way, at a time of her own choosing, indicates that she has a good idea of what she wants, and gets good advice. There is still a long way ahead - but she is in control of her wheelchair.

Kristina's last name, Vogel, means bird.
The bird will fly again! :)

Becky and Kristina were the closest of rivals and the main protagonists in each other's biggest successes.
She is giving a press conference on Wednesday, I believe.
