Tesfazion involved in a large crash at Iztulia Basque Country

The Eritrean rider has been taken to hospital for control

Natnatel Tesfazion was unfortunately among the riders who suffered the worst in the large crash that heavily marked today’s fourth stage of the Itzulia Basque Country.

After being attended by the race doctors onsite, Tesfazion was transported to hospital by ambulance for all the necessary checks. He never lost consciousness, despite the bad crash, but suffered numerous contusions and abrasions on the right part of his body. The medical examinations performed on Natnael revealed no fractures or concussion. Further treatment is currently underway, particularly on the right elbow, the most severe injury sustained by the rider.

Tesfazion has left the hospital and will be treated by team doctor Michele De Grandi.
