Giacomo Nizzolo ends season with immediate effect
Further examination and tests have discovered the injuries Giacomo Nizzolo sustained from a crash at the Tour de l’Eurométropole on September 22 are more severe than were first revealed, and force Nizzolo to end the season with immediate effect.
Trek-Segafredo head physician, Gaetano Daniele: “Giacomo was involved in a massive crash at the Tour de l’Eurométropole. Last week, during his bike trainings, he was still feeling pain in the hip and in the groin. We decided yesterday to perform an MRI that revealed two microfractures in the right acetabulum region. Unfortunately, this means that Giacomo will be off the bike for three weeks and cannot participate in the planned races in Italy and China.”
Giacomo Nizzolo: “Every time you end a season with a crash, of course it's not ideal. Coming off the Vuelta in good shape, I would have liked to exploit it at the best in the final races of the season. The blow in Belgium has been quite severe though, I felt that right away, but we had to wait and see for a few days how my injuries would evolve. Today I got the results of the further examinations we undertook and unluckily I have two microfractures that don't really leave me much of a choice.
"I am of course very sad that I won’t be able to race in the Hammer Series in Hong Kong and in the two races in Italy, Beghelli and Tre Valli, which were for me a real goal after finishing the Vuelta in such a good condition. It’s a pity, but I will focus on my recovery now and I will just anticipate the period of rest I had planned after the season and will restart training earlier to build up for what's next.”
