Very strange story, was it Philippe Gilbert or Nacer Bohanni in a similar case last year?

    Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

    Quote from: Axel Merckx
    There have been conflicting news reports concerning the condition of Axeon Hagens Berman Cycling Team rider Chad Young, who crashed Sunday in the Tour of the Gila. Unfortunately, Chad is not expected to recover from his injuries.

    The 21-year-old from Newmarket, New Hampshire, suffered severe head injuries in a high-speed mountain descent and was life-flighted to a hospital in Tucson, Ariz.

    At this time, his family asks for privacy. We at Axeon Hagens Berman respect the family's wishes and want them to know that they are in our thoughts and prayers during this devastating and difficult time

    I was going to use the CN tweet for this injury update, but the picture they decided to use has his meat and two veg on show.

    Sudpresse - 15 May 2017




    “The Tour of France is Down for Me”

    Vallée Broken Collarbone Yields to the Facts

    Victim of a broken collarbone following his crash at the Four Days of Dunkirk, Boris Vallée had a successful surgery last Saturday evening with Dr Claes. The rider of Thimister has gone back home on Sunday afternoon and is now considering his come back to competition but knows he has to scrap the Tour of France.

    Since his heavy crash last Friday on the 4th stage of the Four Days of Dunkirk, Boris Vallée (23 years old) has done nothing but visiting hospitals. The rider of Thimister is covered with bruises due to the violence of the contact with the asphalt and could not get back on the saddle.
    Quote
    I didn’t understand. We were riding 60 to 70kmh in a descent on the approach of the local circuits. Then I probably took a hole, a bidon or a cavity on the road and I passed over my bike. I was right in the middle of the peloton. I was wondering what happened. Some riders then knocked into me as well. I kept lying on the ground.  I could no longer move my left arm nor leg. I was also suffering at my neck and collarbone. The race doctors came for support and I went into the ambulance.

    Open to the Bone

    Vallée was cared for at the Hospital Centre of Boulogne-sur-Mer before being repatriated to Belgium last Saturday. No question of getting back home, he was headed to Herentals to Dr Toon Claes, who has a reputation in the cycling world for collarbone surgery. After undergoing a surgery on Saturday evening and getting back home on Sunday afternoon in Thimister, the sprinter of Verviers should be able to train again within a week or 10 days.
    Quote
    A plate has been placed at my left collarbone. I was also transplanted flesh and skin at the elbow because I was open to the bones. I had already broken my right collarbone with the juniors and I crashed heavily with the national team during a training session in the Vosges but it’s the first time the consequences were so heavy. I have contusions on the whole upper body, which prevents me from sleeping well. Fortunately my legs have been spared. Perhaps I might resume physical activity within a week.

    His Dream is Blowing Away

    After a difficult start to the season ending with an optimistic note at the Denain GP (4th), mid-April, Vallée hoped he could start the second part of the season on the Four Days of Dunkirk. Eventually his objectives will be postponed and he must yield to the facts: his greatest dream is blowing away.
    Quote
    Taking part in the Tour of France, it’s down but you have to deal with it. It’s true that there won’t be too many other chances to race in my province, in front of my home and my parents’ home with all my fans but I’m still alive. I want to keep a positive mind, not to tell myself that the whole year is rotten. I have to come back and win one. I need to provoke luck even though misfortune is sometimes involved.

    The most reasonable objective is around a bit more than two months at the Tour of Wallonia in which he won the 2nd stage last year.
    Quote
    I hope I’ll be able to perform nicely and to compete in a handful of races before in order to be fit again.

    Broken femur for Jonas Vingegaard, the best danish u23. That sucks also because he could legitimately have aimed for overall and stages in Aosta and l'Avenir.

    Jürgen Roelandts retired from the last stage of the Tour of Switzerland because of an allergy (pollen?). That way he has an extra rest day before the nats.
