Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana (Stage 2) : Tony Gallopin fractures his left scaphoid
Tony Gallopin crashed 15 kilometers from the finish of the second stage of the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana. “He suffered a fractured left scaphoid. We will announce how long he will be unavailable to race at a later date,” Eric Bouvat, head doctor for AG2R LA MONDIALE, said. Oliver Naesen was caught in the same crash and suffered a blow to the pelvis, but no fracture.
Clément Venturini took 8th place, his second top ten in three days of racing this season, during the second stage of the Etoile de Bessèges between Milhaud and Poulx. Benoît Cosnefroy is still in second place in the general classification.
