Several of our riders were unlucky Tuesday afternoon.
Kasper Asgreen crashed in the final kilometer of Le Samyn. Following this incident, the Dane was left with a lot of skin abrasions, but nothing that will have a big impact on the coming weeks.
European Champion Fabio Jakobsen was another Soudal Quick-Step rider involved in a crash, with 50 kilometers to go. The Dutchman has a contusion of his scapula and ligaments in his shoulder, as well as multiple wounds over his body that required patching up, and will need a few days to recover.
