Lotto Belisol: Update injury André Greipel
tdf13st19mw-20griepel After his crash in the final of Ghent-Wevelgem André Greipel immediately went to the hospital this evening. A third degree AC luxation of the collarbone was the conclusion after the examination. Because of the crash the collarbone was dislocated and both ligaments between collarbone and shoulder have been completely pulled off.

Tonight Greipel will undergo surgery by doctor Toon Claes. The torn ligaments will be replaced and a little plate will be fixed to strengthen it. Of course Greipel will spend the night in hospital.

The diagnosis immediately puts an end to the participation of Greipel in the spring races. In the selection of the Three Days of De Panne he won’t be replaced (preview tomorrow).
