Tiesj Benoot ready for his first Vuelta
Motivated at the starting line.
Tiesj Benoot abandons the Tour de France. That decision was taken by mutual agreement with the sports directors and the medical staff. Tiesj was involved in a crash yesterday with five kilometres to go. The young Belgian sustained several injuries including a second degree dislocation of the AC joint in his right shoulder. He also bruised some ribs, the right shoulder blade and the left wrist. Hear the reactions of team manager Marc Sergeant and Benoot in the video below.
