Luke Rowe will be the rest of the season no longer able to race through a break in a handwordtelbeentje. That left his team, Sky, to know on its website. Rowe was scheduled for the Canadian classics, the GP Quebec (7 september) and GP Montreal (9 september).
The 28-year-old Dutch boss ran during the road race of the european CHAMPIONSHIPS in Glasgow a scafoïdebreuk in his right wrist. Rowe ended the race fifteenth, reed, and afterwards also the Tour of Germany. The pain, however, was heavier and so he went on a visit to a specialist in Cardiff. His unavailability is six to eight weeks.
“I walked into the break on during the last round of the european CHAMPIONSHIPS”, explained Rowe. “It was nobody’s fault. I also had a cut on my hand and that was acid, but I drove just beyond. After the european CHAMPIONSHIPS, I have an exploration in Roubaix done and then the Tour of Germany driven. The last days was the pain, however, worse. I taped the wrist fixed, but every time we put in the way of reason, I’ve suffered a lot of pain. The races in Canada were my last of the season. It is a pity that now loss. My wrist is in plaster, that is the best way for him to fully heal.”
