2019 Injury/Illness list


(Andrew note - just popping this onto the front page where people can see it. Thanks to MOUA for posting and to all the contributors so far. Let's hope for the relative paucity of injuries to continue).

I've never posted one of these so hope I've got it right.

We'll soon be in VDS team-picking mode. Here are a couple of names I've spotted who may not be racing for a while.

Max Richeze (Quickstep): Hit by car 10 days ago, knee injury, return uncertain

Pauline Ferrand Prevot (Canyon SRAM) : out for at least 4 months after surgery this week

Returning from injury, fitness untested:

Petr Vakoc (Quickstep): Hasn't raced since Oct 2017 (training crash with car). Returns at Vuelta San Juan

Rick Zabel (Katusha): Broke collarbone training in November. Returns in Spain this month

Annemiek van Vleuten (M-S) : Broke knee at 2018 worlds and had complicated recovery. Doesn't expect to be 100% until after Ardennes.
