Kasper Asgreen abandons the Tour de Suisse

Kasper Asgreen abandons the Tour de Suisse

Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl will continue the Tour de Suisse in six men, after last year’s Ronde van Vlaanderen winner Kasper Asgreen was forced to call it a race. The 27-year-old was one of the team’s three riders to hit the ground with four kilometers to go in stage 3, alongside Ilan Van Wilder.

As a consequence of the crash, Kasper has multiple road rash on the arms and legs and a deep wound on his left knee, which needed stitches. After further medical examinations, it has been decided he will not start Wednesday’s stage 4 to Brunnen, so that his body can recover.

“I am disappointed to say goodbye to the Tour de Suisse. The feeling in these first couple of days had been good and I was looking forward to the coming stages. I want to thank the team’s medical staff for how they looked after me and at the same time express my hope that the recovery will be a fast one. Best of luck to my teammates for the next days”, an upbeat Kasper said.
