Soapy water on the street causes crash and shoulder injury
A freak accident has taken Michael Mørkøv out of Paris-Roubaix. The Saxo Bank-SunGard rider slipped on soapy water from the team's overflowing washing machine and crashed, apparently breaking his shoulder.
"It was a really unlucky crash and of course, I'm very unhappy right now,” Mørkøv said on the team's website.
"I was just going out for a quick spin. When I crossed some sewage from our truck, my front wheel just slipped, and I crashed down on my shoulder. I did do our training ride afterwards, but back at the hotel I knew something was wrong.
“I got some treatments, but it didn't help me. We fear that I have some kind of fracture in my shoulder, so late last night it was decided that I wouldn't ride.”
The Dane expects to be out of racing for several weeks. His place at Paris-Roubaix will be taken by Australian David Tanner.
