In fine shape in the Ovo Energy Tour of Britain, as shown by her second place on stage one and fourth on stage two, Marianne Vos is facing a period of time on the sidelines after crashing during Friday’s third stage.
She hit the deck inside the final kilometre and while she was able to cross the finish line, her race is at an end. It was actually her second fall during the stage, although the first of those wasn’t as serious.
“Marianne injured her left arm and right clavicle in the sprint and was initially treated in the team bus,” said her WM3 Energie team in its race report. “She went to the hospital to have X-rays taken which indicated a broken right clavicle.
“At this point, it is not yet known what the consequences will be in her programme for the remaining of the season.”
Vos showed strong form in the run up to the race, winning the Trofee Maarten Wynants, the Rabobank 7-Dorpenomloop Aalburg and Gooik-Geraardsbergen-Gooik.
