“Well, it was a mega crash”, Naesen sighed at the finish. “I fear a football injury. I tap the frame of my bicycle with my right knee. The moment I fall I get a new wave of riders over my back. My bike turned 180 degrees under my body while still holding my foot on my click pedal. So I fear a joint problem, an injury to the ligaments of my knee. It makes no sense to have a scan because my knee is too swollen. I’m waiting. I have crossed the line because I still intend to continue, but it may be that this will not work. ”
In addition to Naesen, about fifty other riders crashed hard. Stijn Steels, among others, seemed to be in bad shape.
