Deceuninck-Quick-Step's Remco Evenepoel has suffered a heavy crash during Il Lombardia and his condition is still uncertain.

The Belgian rider was in the front group during the second Monument of the season -the first one of his career- when he lost control of the bike during a descent. The bike seemed to crash against the wall of a bridge, and he flew over it, falling over the edge in a scary image.

At first, everybody watching the race feared the worst, but soon information coming from the Italian broadcaster RAI, Belgian broadcaster Sporza and the organisation of the race indicated that Evenepoel is conscious. Later images showed two ambulances arriving to the crash place, and he was taken in one of them.

More to come.
