Positive news for Tadej Pogacar's Tour de France hopes after CT scan

Following a crash at Liège-Bastogne-Liège left two-time former Tour de France winner, Tadej Pogacar with a broken wrist, the Slovenian's Maillot Jaune hopes were in doubt. The latest CT scan on the injury however, brings positive news.

“The results of the CT scan are positive. The bones are healing well. He can now fully train on the road and will stop training on the rollers," UAE Team Emirates, the team that Pogacar is expected to lead at the Tour de France, have revealed to WielerFlits. "Tadej will continue to use a hand brace as a precaution."

Pogacar has recently been spending time at an altitude training camp alongside fellow UAE Team Emirates injury worry, Tim Wellens and the Slovenian recently posted some impressive rides to Strava, showing his level of form remains incredibly high.

“During this altitude training, I try to get as much out of it as possible. I have the best care here in terms of massages and physiotherapy. Yes, there is still a lot of work to be done," Pogacar has said. "I lost a number of training sessions and that is why I have to focus mainly on interval and endurance training in the open air in the coming period.”
