Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) hasn’t had the best month. The Danish Criterium du Dauphine winner crashed on stage 11 of the Tour de France, fracturing his arm in two places, and while he was able to continue for a couple days, he soon abandoned on stage 13.
Now, in his first race back, Fuglsang has again broken a bone in a crash and again faces some time on the sidelines.
Fuglsang was taking part in a criterium in the Danish city of Herning, when he crashed and was taken to hospital. Scans confirmed that he’d broken his collarbone and that sugery would be required.
His Astana team has said that “Information about recovery time will appear after the surgery.”
