With a stage win plus a five-day stint in yellow, Tomas De Gendt was one of the standout riders from the Critérium du Dauphiné. However the Belgian was a non-starter on the final stage due to a wrist injury.
The Lotto-Soudal rider has undergone a medical check and, fortunately, the situation is not as serious as might have been.
“Today Thomas went to the hospital for an examination,” said his team in a statement. “As it turns out he has an intersection syndrome, or oarsman’s wrist.
“Thomas has to wear a brace for three weeks, but is able to train. His preparation for the Tour de France is not endangered.”
