Further exams reveal more serious injuries

Blel Kadri (AG2R La Mondiale) will be out of competition for two months due to injuries sustained from a crash in stage 5 at Paris-Nice, his team announced today

The 25-year-old Frenchman was originally diagnosed with a broken scapula and thought not to need corrective surgery, but further medical examinations in Toulouse revealed more serious injuries. Kadri's broken scapula was revealed to be a more complex fracture requiring surgery, and he's also been diagnosed with a skull fracture.

Kadri underwent surgery today and is expected to return to competition in two months.

Kadri is in his fourth year as a professional cyclist, all with AG2R La Mondiale, and has one victory in his palmares, a stage at the 2010 Route du Sud.
