Annemiek van Vleuten does not participate in Brabantse Pijl due to shoulder fracture

10 April 2018

Annemiek van Vleuten will not be at the start of the first Brabantse Pijl for women tomorrow. The world champion time trial fell during the Tour of Flanders, but she still managed to finish third. Initially it seemed that she only had a dislocated shoulder, but in the hospital they also noticed a fracture.

"I do not need surgery, I can train without pain and focus on the Amstel Gold Race now", says van Vleuten on Twitter.
