Adrien Costa fund for rehabilitation achieves target as big cycling names contribute

adrien costa

 

The page created by the Berman Axeon team to raise enough funds so that the former cyclist Adrien Costa can get the needed treatment is now closing on its target of $100,000!

 

 

The squad now aims to aid their former rider from a leg amputation and since they first opened it a couple of days ago, big names of the cycling world have contributed reaching the target in less than three days.

 

 

Now, Adrien Costa,20, will be able to cover his medical expenses and operation after the terrible climbing accident that took place a while ago leaving doctors with no other choice but to amputate his right leg starting from above the knee.

 

An impressive rider

 

Costa was considered one of the America’s best young cyclists after winning several stages at the Tour of Utah. He also won first place overall at the Tour de Bretagne back in 2016.

 

 

“Everyone at Hagens Berman Axeon is deeply saddened by the news and our thoughts and prayers are with Adrien’s family and friends at this difficult time,” his team expressed on their fundraising page’s main message.

 

“We have set up this page to help with medical expenses and are asking the cycling community to join our efforts. Any donations, or help you can offer in terms of sharing this link, would be greatly appreciated.”
