Cyclist Hit by A Barrier During a Race
Argentinian Cyclist Eduardo Sepulveda was knocked unconscious, after being hit by a barrier blown into his path by strong winds. It happened when he was around 125 meters to the finish line. The freak accident broke his wrist and caused other minor injuries, he'll be out for 3 months.
This is the 2nd major crash for Sepulveda in just 5 months. He broke his fibia at the Coppa Agostoni last September. The 24-year-old Fortuneo-Vital Concept rider expects to be able to return for the Tour de France later this year.
