Oliver Naesen was not unharmed from the first stage of the BinckBank Tour. The AG2R rider suffers from a major bruise in the capsule of the right knee after a crash. It is not yet certain whether he will start the second stage tomorrow.
A scan did not reveal any other injuries. Naesen has not yet made a decision whether he will start again tomorrow. He may do this during the day in consultation with the team doctor.
“Things are going much better,” Naesen tells our editorial team. “Nothing essential has hit inside the knee. So that’s good news. ”
Today’s time trial in Vlissingen is canceled due to the stricter corona measures in the Netherlands. The riders are thus served a rest day. Alternatives are being sought for the stages on Thursday and Friday.
