McCarthy and Hosking win Cadel’s; Vakoc’s spinal surgery: Daily News Digest
Here’s a video in which QuickStep Floors’ Bob Jungels gives his perspective of the training crash that landed two of his teammates in hospital.
In an earlier statement Jungels said: “The three of us were out training, when suddenly I heard a loud noise and then in the following second I saw Laurens and Petr on the ground. I did not see the truck coming from behind, but it must have hit them with the left front mirror or even the front left part. I ran to them and could see they were injured, so I did not dare to move them.
“A lady who was on the side of the road came and helped us, calling the ambulance, while our trainer Koen and I talked with them. It was really tough to see them like that and I hope they will get over this difficult moment soon. I wish them a fast recovery.”
