Laurens De Plus Update

Laurens De Plus Update

The 22-year-old Belgian will have to postpone his season debut.

Yesterday, January 29th, Laurens De Plus underwent further tests at the Mediclinic hospital in Nelspruit, where he was admitted after he and Quick-Step Floors teammate Petr Vakoč were both clipped by a truck during their training camp in South Africa, last week.

The exams revealed a non-displaced fracture to the acetabulum on the right side of his pelvis and a microfracture to his sacrum. De Plus – who will fly home tomorrow evening – will have to undergo conservative therapy and he will need at least three weeks of recovery before resuming training.
