Team Sky’s Luke Rowe out of the 2018 season after broken wrist



One of Team Sky’s guys, Luke Rowe is now obligated to end his season here after fracturing his wrist while at the European Championships a couple of weeks ago.


Sadly, even though this time the injury is not as bad as last year’s one when he smashed his leg’s bones while at his brother’s stag party, it is still enough to leave him out of the road.


Now, the rider will have to keep it in plaster for at least six weeks and force him to not become part of GP Quebec and Montreal.


Time to heal


“I got the injury back at the Euros going into the last lap. It was just a racing incident really – it wasn’t anyone’s fault. I clipped my right hand on a barrier on a right-hand bend. I got a small cut on my hand. At the time it was quite sore, but I just got on with it,” Rowe said a few days ago during a press release.


“I did a Roubaix recon on the Tuesday before Deutschland Tour. Then throughout that race, and certainly in the last few days, I was in quite a bit of pain. I was trying to tape the wrist but every time I hit a pothole or speed bump it was getting painful, so that’s when I thought I better get a scan.


The Canadian cycling events were scheduled for September the 7th and 9.
