Julian Alaphilippe has fractured two bones in his right hand and will undergo surgery on Monday, according to his team Deceuninck-Quickstep.
The French rider crashed into a motorbike during Sunday’s Tour of Flanders, and a statement confirmed his injuries.
Alaphilippe has since been seen with his right arm in a sling. He appears to have done the damage after landing on the road, having put his left arm out to soften his fall.
