« Breaking news from Belgium:


We got some sweet and bitter race today, in the Belgian semi classic Elfsteden Ronde Bruges.

Let’s start with the unfortunate news of our Canadian Guillaume Boivin who suffered from a knee injury during the race and in the moment we are writing these words is operated in a Belgian Hospital.

We can assure you after talking to the doctors that G will be fine and although recovery will take a few months, he will be good as new.

What happened ? Well, according to the information we gathered, G stopped in the side of the road to pee, and when trying to get back to the peloton, he has hit another team car. That team car has stopped at the side of the road before G hit it, said our team Director Eric Van Lancker. “It was very misfortunate that he hit a standing car” said Eric. “But we blame nobody. These things happen”.

G was rushed to the hospital and x rays and CT revealed he suffers from Tibial platau fracture. It’s basically the bone under the knee. He was operated and the present estimate is that he will need about 4 months till he will be able to race again.

“Full recovery is expected” said ICA team Doctor Idit Shub.

Most of his teammates learned about the injury only after the race. “I was very sad to hear this” said Israeli Guy Sagiv who is very close to G. “ It’s tough. So unlucky. But knowing G, he will overcome this. He supported and helped me so much in the Giro d'Italia when I faced difficult moments. Now it’s mine and our turn to support and encourage him. »
