Bart De Clercq out for months after heavy crash on training

Bart De Clercq out for months after heavy crash on training

The new year started badly for our new rider Bart De Clercq. Our 31-year-old climber crashed heavily on training on Tuesday. He suffers from a subcapital fracture of the left femur. Bart De Clercq was operated on Tuesday by dr. Toon Claes in AZ Herentals in Belgium.

Dr. Joost De Maeseneer (team doctor):

"The fracture is heavy and required the placement of screws in the femur. It is difficult to estimate a return in competition. Normally Bart can only resume light training in about six weeks. Returning to competition is a matter of months. "
