MARCEL SIEBERG
LOTTO SOUDAL
ENECO TOUR

Lotto Soudal rider Marcel Sieberg has fractured his collarbone as result of a crash during the sixth stage of the Eneco Tour. However, doctors stated that he will be able to participate in the World Championships.

The German was riding with the peloton when he hit the ground on a railway crossing with 55 kilometers to go. The crash looked serious and the rider immediately received support from emergency staff.

Sieberg was transported to a hospital in Maastricht, the Netherlands, in order to be checked-up. The medical examination concluded that he suffered a non-displaced fracture to the left collarbone.

On Monday he will undergo surgery in Herentals, Belgium, which will be performed by doctor Toon Claes. The diagnosis predicts that he will likely be able to participate in the World Championships in Qatar as planned.
