Van Avermaet sustains multiple injuries in Liège-Bastogne-Liège crash

Greg Van Avermaet was forced to abandon Liège-Bastogne-Liège today (04 October) after sustaining a torn ligament and multiple fractures in a crash inside 100 kilometers to go, CCC Team doctor, Dr. Piotr Kosielski confirmed.

“X-rays performed at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire du Sart-Tilman in Liège revealed that Greg sustained an acromioclavicular joint separation as well as three fractured ribs, a small pneumothorax, and a small fracture of the first thoracic vertebra transverse process. Fortunately, he suffered no concussion. These injuries more than likely mean the end of Greg’s season however, alongside CCC Team’s Chief Medical Officer, Max Testa, we will monitor his recovery and make any decisions accordingly in the coming days and weeks.”
