PIERRE LATOUR
AG2R LA MONDIALE

Pierre Latour has broken a bone in the right hand during the training camp of AG2R-La Mondiale in Spain. The French rider will need some weeks to recover completely from this injury.

Latour suffered a fracture in his fifth metacarpal bone, also known as metacarpal bone of the little finger, of his right hand. French newspaper L'Equipe confirms that this happened when the rider fell down the stairs of a hotel in Gandia, Spain, where his team is currently on a winter training camp.

AG2R-La Mondiale expects that the rider will be recovered within weeks. "He will be authorized to train on the road within 3 weeks but he will be soon able to ride a home trainer with an adapted orthosis," it said in a press release.

Latour is expected to start his 2017 season at the Grand Prix Cycliste La Marseillaise on January 29th. It is to be confirmed whether he will be completely recovered from the fracture by then.

In the last Vuelta a España, the Frenchman made his debut in a Grand Tour and got his first stage victory right away at stage 20 to the Alto de Aitana, beating Colombian Darwin Atapuma of BMC Racing Team.
