‘Several severe injuries’ for Frison

by VeloClub

Lotto-Soudal has confirmed that its rider Frederik Frison has suffered complicated injuries as a result of his crash in the Four Days of Dunkirk on Tuesday.

“Further tests yesterday evening and this morning showed that Frederik doesn’t only have a fractured pelvis. He has several severe injuries,” it said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Frederik has multiple pelvic fractures and it will take time and a lot of rest for this to heal. New scans showed that his chest intercepted a big part of the crash. On the left, Frederik has three broken ribs and two fractures to the transverse process on his vertebrae. Further examination also showed he has a small pneumothorax. Frederik doesn’t need to undergo surgery.”

Belgian rider Frison is 24 years of age and first started racing with the team in 2015 as a stagiaire. He turned professional the following year.
