Oliver Naesen with a broken nose start to his spring. The Belgian champion was a fall in the Rut del Sol. “Annoying, but I there will be no mile-per-hour slower due to drive”, he responded at TV Oost.
Naesen thought initially that the damage is so bad, but when the pain returned to Belgium not yet gone, therefore he went to the hospital. Then came the breakage to the light. The nasal bone is, fortunately, not moved.
Naesen himself speaks of “annoying, but I there will be no mile-per-hour slower ride. It bothers me only if I have my glasses on. You can compare it with a blocked nose. You must not create more of than it actually is”.
For Naesen had the timing anyway have been better. Next weekend begins the Flemish spring after all, with the Omloop het Nieuwsblad.
