“OPQS rider Zdenek Stybar suffered bad luck on Thursday, crashing at Kermiscross Ardooie (Belgium). The UCI World Cyclocross Champion returned to racing only recently after another crash in Ardooie, on the road at Eneco Tour.
Stybar underwent examinations following the crash. The X-rays underlined ligament ruptures as the result of a Grade 3 AC-joint dislocation on the right shoulder. Surgery to stabilize the AC-Joint, and repair the ruptured ligaments, was performed at the hospital of H.-Hartziekenhuis Roeselare in the late afternoon. The surgery performed by Doctor Alexander Ryckaert went good.
Stybar will leave the hospital tomorrow. More information about the time of recovery will be released on Wednesday, the 22nd of October, after medical control.”
