Lidl-Trek suffer a big blow at Dwars door Vlaanderen

An update on the Lidl-Trek riders involved in the crash at Dwars door Vlaanderen:

Mads Pedersen

The winner of Gent-Wevelgem on Sunday was the luckiest of our riders in the crash and escaped with just abrasions and contusions. The plan remains that Pedersen will race on Sunday but he will continue to be monitored by the team.

Jasper Stuyven

The Belgian came into the 2024 Classics season in strong form, and has a second-place finish E3 Saxo Classic to prove it, but unfortunately Jasper Stuyven fractured his collarbone in the crash at Dwars door Vlaanderen but he underwent successful surgery on the same day as the race (Wednesday 27 March).


Alex Kirsch

The Luxembourg national champion was also taken to hospital after the crash for further examinations where scans revealed a fractured 4th metacarpal on his right hand with surgery being performed at the same hospital as Stuyven in Belgium.

Poignant words from Toms Skujins

Wishing both Jasper and Alex a good recovery. Heal up, guys! 🫶
