Diagnosis Jurgen Van den Broeck
lotto650big Early this morning Jurgen Van den Broeck left the team hotel of Lotto Belisol. Immediately after his arrival in Zaventem he had a consultation with doctor Toon Claes in Herentals, were an MRI scan was taken to determine the seriousness of the injury.

That the knee was hit considerably was already clear Thursday morning when departure in stage six wasn’t an option. This assessment was confirmed today. A partial crack of the posterior cruciate ligament, a partial crack of the medial ligament, an injury of the cartilage, a bone bruise and a bruise of the patella tendon was concluded. Apart from that also blood was drawn two times out of the knee.

The injury of the cartilage will be mended next week with an operation, because of the abrasions this operation can’t take place now due to danger for infection.

This means a presumable inactivity of competition of eight to ten weeks, under reservation of the result of the arthroscopy.
