Van Aert set to leave hospital Pau on Tuesday

Wout van Aert will leave the hospital in Pau on Tuesday. The cyclist of Team Jumbo-Visma crashed during his time trial in the Tour de France last Friday and suffered a very serious deep wound on his right upper leg.

In cooperation with the team and the management of Van Aert, Eurocross will transfer the two times stage winner (including the TTT) to a hospital that cooperates with Team Jumbo-Visma.

Last Friday, Van Aert underwent a successful operation during which his wound was cleaned and stitched. The drains were removed on Sunday, which means the wound has stabilised and everything is going as expected. The priority is to prevent infections. The precise impact of the crash on the muscles will have to be determined later.

Watch the video where he tells more about his crash and injuries here and about his recovery here.
