The Frenchman suffered a cut on, that with a few stitches had to be closed. Bardet should be as well as certainly a cross to worry about the Ruta del Sol, a five day stage race through Andalusia on 14 February.
It was going to be an embarrassing accident, but what exactly happened is not yet known. “I was Sunday, the victim of a domestic accident, which I have the entire day on the pitch have spent. My forearm should be immobile, to stay so the tendons can heal. I hope to be back soon on two wheels.”, responded Bardet on his facebook profile.
On the advice of the doctors is wearing Bardet for two weeks with a splint on his left arm. How the program of the French climber in the coming weeks will look like, depends on the rehabilitation. Basically he starts in the Ardèche Classic (24/02), and he takes in march, part of the Strade Bianche in Italy.
Bardet, 2016 second and last year third in the Tour de France, kicked off his season at the end of January with the GP La Marseillaise. Here, he finished in eighth place.
