Tadej Pogacar to start indoor training next week, UAE inform

Tadej Pogacar has crashed out of Liège-Bastogne-Liège and his spring ended there. The Slovenian suffered several fractures in his wrist and has been recovering. He will be getting back on the bike next week.

"He did medical checks Tuesday, all ok," team DS Maurio Gianetti told Gazzetta dello Sport. "Now still rest, hopefully from next week indoor training. First training on road not before 5 weeks after crash at Liège-Bastogne-Liège."

Pogacar will be preparing for the Tour de France. His initial plan has already been changed a bit as he is skipping aerodynamical testing and a recon of some of the stages of the Grand Boucle, but the main plan continues to be in place.

Pogacar will be joining his teammates in an altitude training camp ahead of the Tour. Gianetti claimed he wouldn't be on the road until five weeks after the crash however, which would mean it'll be in early June. The Critérium du Dauphiné and Tour de Suisse are certainly out of the equation but it is also likely at this point that he will not return to the Tour of Slovenia in order to spend good time at a camp and begin the Tour without having the racing kilometers in the legs.
