Campenaerts damages two vertebrae after a fall

The Belgian cyclist suffered a spectacular fall in the Tour of the Czech Republic in which fissures occurred in two lumbar vertebrae that will not prevent him from continuing to compete.


Belgian cyclist Victor Campenaerts has not started on the right foot the restart of the cycling calendar after the stoppage due to the coronavirus a few weeks away from facing some of his great goals of this atypical 2020 season.

A little more than a week before the Belgian time trial nationals dispute, the Belgian cyclist suffered a severe fall in the team time trial of the Tour of the Czech Republic, in which there were two small cracks in two vertebrae, as revealed medical scanners.

Campenaerts himself, who uploaded the video of the fall to his YouTube channel, related in Sporza how his feelings are after the fall and how it can affect him during this season. "I have two cracks in the L2 and L3 vertebrae on the left side. They are usually frequent. They are not a risk and I will be able to continue riding my bike, but it will be very painful for the next 5-6 weeks" .
