Leemreize, intervened to save a finger after his fall

The 20-year-old Dutchman was involved in a montonera 54 km from the finish line. You will be operated by a surgeon to try not to lose the tip of a finger.


A steep drop in the first stage of the Vuelta a Burgos, 54 kilometers from the finish, ended with two dropouts: Gijs Leemreize (Jumbo Visma) and Sergio Henao (Ineos). The Jumbo rider suffered a strong blow that damaged a finger of his right hand. The 20-year-old cyclist showed great gestures of pain while the race doctors attended him.

After the accident, in which two other colleagues, Bennett and Fischer, were involved, he was transferred to a hospital center where a surgeon will operate on him so that he does not lose part of his finger. "That is the most important thing and we hope that the operation goes well. Until the accident it did a great job for the team," said its director, Frans Maassen.
