Quick Step's Kurt Hovelijnck is in a critical condition following a heavy fall during training in the Vlaamse Ardennen. The 27-year-old Belgian was riding with teammate Wouter Weylandt when the incident occurred.
"It is really very serious. He bled from his eye and maybe he has a skull fracture. I'm still very affected," Weylandt told Sporza.
Hovelijnck has been transferred to the University Hospital in Gent.
