Tour de France – Stage 4 – Domont forced to abandon

The victim of a crash 5 kilometers from the finish of the fourth stage, Axel Domont was forced to abandon the Tour

Upon arriving at the finish, Domont was examined by the medical staff of the Tour de France, and then transferred to the hospital of Vannes to undergo additional examinations including an X-Ray.

“He is suffering from a fracture of the right collarbone. The X-Ray did not, however, detect a fracture to the skull nor the ribs,” Dr. Eric Bouvat, medical officer of the AG2R LA MONDIALE team, explained. Axel will spend Tuesday night under observation at the hospital as a precaution.

“This is a hard blow. Axel is a valuable teammate, and a very effective worker out of the limelight,” Vincent Lavenu, general manager of the AG2R LA MONDIALE team, said.[/su_quote]
