Tour de France champion Jonas Winegor injured in Basque Tour accident

Posted : 05 April 2024

The Tour de France champion, Jonas Winegor, sustained serious injuries in a shocking accident during the Basque Tour and was swiftly airlifted to the hospital. The incident involved 12 riders, including Primoge Roglic and Remko Abenpol, but Winegor appeared to suffer the most severe injuries, requiring prolonged medical attention at the accident site before being transported to the hospital unconscious, wearing a neck brace and oxygen mask.


Among the injured riders, Abenpol was evacuated due to concerns of a fractured clavicle, while Roglich, though slightly injured, did not require hospitalization. Following the accident, the race was halted as several riders opted to withdraw from further participation.


In an official statement, Winegor's team confirmed the extent of his injuries, stating he suffered from clavicle fractures and multiple rib fractures, though he remained conscious and was being closely monitored in a Spanish hospital.


Winegor's journey to cycling stardom is marked by his humble beginnings as a fisherman, balancing his cycling career with his livelihood. Despite facing adversity, he achieved remarkable success, finishing second in the Tour de France in 2021 before clinching the prestigious title the following year and successfully defending it last year.
