Following his crash in the closing kilometers of Nokere Koerse, Jannik Steimle from Deceuninck-Quick Step was taken to the hospital where he underwent a detailed examination to determine his condition. It was immediately revealed that the 24-year-old had suffered an AC luxation of his right shoulder, which will require surgery.
At the same time, Wednesday’s incident left Jannik, who was making just his fifth outing of the season, a fractured rib, a minor pneumo and concussions. Fortunately, the CT scan he had showed no cerebral lesions.
Jannik will remain in hospital overnight to be observed. We wish him a fast and complete recovery!
