by CyclingTips

ORICA-Scott’s Jens Keukeleire was hit by a car while training in Spain and fears he could have a broken collarbone from the incident. The Belgian was taking advantage of the good weather following his debut at the Volta de la Comunitat Valenciana.

“I was finishing what had to be my last training session in Spain before returning to Belgium tomorrow,” he told Cilco21.

“[It could be a] broken collarbone because I have the same feelings as the last time I suffered the same injury.”

In addition to the collarbone, he suffered a facial wound, and scrapes on his leg and arm. Fortunately for him it appears the bike took the brunt of the impact.

The driver of the car remained on the scene and police reported that the fault of the incident was with Keukeliere who was passing the car on the right after the driver had indicated a right turn.
