Mollema abandons Tour de France after fracturing wrist in Stage 13 crash 
  
During the 13th Stage of the Tour de France, Trek-Segafredo co-leader Bauke Mollema was involved in a crash that also involved AG2R La Mondiale leader Romain Bardet.  Initially he was transported to the race ambulance, then move to a helicopter to be airlifted to Clermont Ferrand Hospital where he underwent X-rays that confirmed a suspected broken left wrist.
 
Trek-Segafredo physician Gaetano Daniele: Bauke has sustained a complex fracture of his left wrist: a fracture of the radius and ulnar bones as well as a scaphoid fracture. He is still waiting a CT scan to better understand the situation. At the Hospital in Clermond Ferrand they have already reduced the fracture of the radius that was causing pressure on the Median Nerve and a lot of pain for Bauke, but now he’s okay and pain-free. We are just waiting to finish the scans and decide what kind of surgery and when, but normally it must be done soon.”
 
All further updates will be via the team’s Twitter account.
