Dubai: Dutch cyclist Wilco Kelderman and two of his teammates on the Bora-Hansgrohe team have been hospitalised after a car crashed into their training group, the German team said Sunday.
Kelderman, who was third in the Giro d’Italia for Sunweb last year, has a concussion and a fractured vertebrae. Teammate Andreas Schillinger has fractured vertebrae and Rudiger Selig has a concussion, the team said.
Bora-Hansgrohe have been in training for the upcoming UAE Tour, which gets the 2021 cycling season under way next month. They were training in a group on Sunday when “several of our riders were involved in an accident with a car, which crossed the road and rode into our training group”.
The team didn’t specify where the incident happened, though Bora-Hansgrohe have been holding a training camp this month in Italy near Lake Garda.
