Nibali fractures wrist in training accident

This morning Vincenzo Nibali fell while he was training near Ponte Tresa, in the district of Lugano, hitting his right hand.

Clinical examinations at a Lugano-based clinic (X-ray and CT scan) have unfortunately revealed a compound fracture of the radius of the right wrist.

The Trek-Segafredo medical staff, in agreement with the Team management and Vincenzo, have decided to opt for an immediate osteosynthesis surgery to reduce the fracture, which is scheduled for tomorrow in Switzerland.
Only after the surgery is performed will it be possible to hypothesize a recovery path and make the necessary evaluations regarding Nibali’s participation in the Giro d’Italia.
