Remco Evenepoel fell hard in the Tour of Lombardy. The Deceuninck-Quick-Step rider was part of a select leading group when he was launched over a wall in the descent of the Muro di Sormano.

The 20-year-old Evenepoel collided with a wall of a bridge when turning a bend. He lay in the ravine for some time. It took a while for rescuers to find the best way to carry him upstairs. Eventually the rescue workers managed to lift him out of the ravine by stretcher. As a precaution, his head was stabilized. He was taken to hospital by ambulance.

Sports director Davide Bramati has told Italian broadcaster RAI that Evenepoel is indeed conscious. The first diagnosis is an injury to the right leg.
