Romain Bardet was the victim of an accident at his home on Sunday, February 4 in Vence (Alpes Maritimes / French Riviera).
He suffered a cut, and a small muscle injury on his left forearm that required stitches, and for which he must wear a splint for two weeks, according to Dr. Eric Bouvat, medical manager of the AG2R LA MONDIALE team.
The GP La Marseillaise (8th) confirmed my good feelings. It’s just a shame; when the team, like Tony Gallopin in Béssèges, is very successful, to have to slow down my own preparation a little is annoying.
My injury is more embarrassing than serious, and I will continue to keep up my training before returning to competition very quickly.” Romain Bardet
