The Danish Jonas Vingegaard remains hospitalized at the Txagorritxu Hospital (Vitoria) after the hard crash suffered last week in the Itzulia. The leader of Team Visma LaB for the Tour has been operated on for the pneumothorax suffered in the fall and is now in the ICU recovering and being monitored after the intervention. At the moment, the cyclist, his surroundings, nor the team are considering when he could return to compete.

The Tour de France is not currently a priority for Jonas Vingegaard

Other cyclists involved in the crash, such as Evenepoel, have already been operated on for their broken collarbone and it would not be strange if they had already started pedaling. But the injuries suffered by Jonas Vingegaard have turned out to be as serious as they initially seemed.

The Danish rider was diagnosed with a broken collarbone and several broken ribs, but it was not until Saturday when they detected the pneumothorax for which he was operated on this Monday at the Txagorritxu Hospital in Vitoria. Vingegaard's wife was transferred there a few hours after the accident and the cyclist has remained in the ward until, according to protocol, he was transferred to the ICU after the operation.

In this situation, the sports director of Team Visma Lease a Bike has stated that the first part of his preparation has been canceled, that he will not be at the altitude training camp that the team will carry out next month in Sierra Nevada, and has also announced that he will not go to the Tour de France if he is not at 100%. Something that at the moment seems very likely to happen.
