Following his crash in stage 11 of La Vuelta, the World Champion was taken to the hospital, where he was examined by doctors.
Those examinations have revealed that Julian Alaphilippe has dislocated his right shoulder, while X-rays have shown there is no fracture.
Doctors have reduced the shoulder as a result. Julian will travel to Belgium on Thursday, where he will undergo an extra scan at the hospital in Herentals, in order to rule out any further damage. At this point, no timescale has been set for his recovery.
Everybody at Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl wishes Julian the best for his recovery.
