Broken collarbone for Corné van Kessel

« During the warm up I lost control of my bike in a section I’ve done so many times. Bart Wellens accompanied me to the hospital in Herentals, where a collarbone fracture was diagnosed. The consequences of this simple crash are unfortunate. Last weekend’s fifth place in Meulebeke showed my progression towards the most important races. I want to thank doctor Toon Claes for his fast and efficient help. After this successful operation, I’ll do everything I can to return in the mud as soon as possible! »
