Following a period of consultation with the Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl medical team, it has been decided that the Dane will bring his season to a close.
After an eventful first part of the season that saw him tackle a full classics campaign, Kasper was involved in a nasty crash at the Tour du Suisse, that put in doubt his participation in this year’s Tour de France.
The stresses of the crash and the subsequent attempts to get him ready for the Tour has unfortunately led to Kasper developing a fatigue syndrome, meaning that his body is no longer recovering from even low intensity efforts. It has therefore been decided that he will stop racing for the rest of this season and take a period of recuperation, before focusing on his preparations for 2023.
Everyone at Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl wishes Kasper a restful recovery.
