Primoz Roglic may have broken two vertebrae at Tour de France crash

Primoz Roglic has just recently abandoned the Tour de France after suffering from the effects of his crash on the fifth stage, which ultimately took him out of the overall classification fight later in the race, and further damage has been found.

Although Jumbo-Visma have not revealed it, German commentators and ESPN's Victor Hugo Peña have reported that the Slovenian has after leaving the Tour taken exams due to the back pain he's experienced throughout the race which have revealed in two fractured vertebras.

During his crash it was known that he had dislocated his shoulder, posteriorly having it put in place right after the crash. The Jumbo-Visma rider went on to be pivotal during stage 11 where Tadej Pogacar suffered due to the intense attacking of the team, which has proven to be a critical moment at this year's Tour where Jonas Vingegaard took on the yellow jersey.
