The Slovenian Tadej Pogacar (UAE Emirates) considers himself “lucky” to have fractured “just the wrist” in the fall that last Sunday forced him to retire in Liège Bastogne Liège, and, apart from congratulating Remco Evenepoel for the victory in said test, he summons him to measure himself “in the next one”.
“In cycling this shit happens, but I consider myself lucky to have suffered only a few broken wrists. when i think about how hard the fall was. I hope that Mikkel Honoré -involved in the fall- recovers soon, since his accident was even harder, “says Pogacar on his networks.
After being operated on at the Ghent Hospital, Pogacar received a veritable barrage of messages of supportfor which the double Tour champion wanted to thank.
“It’s hard to explain how happy I am with the support I’ve received from fans, family, friends, my UAE team and especially the hospital staff. I’m very grateful for that and hope to see you all again soon,” he says.
Pogacar, what youit will take 4-6 weeks to recoveralso addressed the Belgian world champion Remco Evenepoel, also since Sunday a double winner of the Lija.
“Congratulations on your victory! Our battle will have to wait until the next opportunity”, an expression that accompanies with a wink.
In addition to two broken wrists, Tadej has many injuries on his handswhich first have to heal completely, after which you can start training carefully indoors,” Dr. Rotunno said on Sunday, before assuring that Pogacar will not be able to participate in a concentration in height with the UAE in Sierra Nevada in early May, which may make his way to the Tour de France difficult.
