Another broken collarbone for Van Den Broeck

The last quarter-year has not been good to Jurgen Van Den Broeck and his collarbones. This week he crashed while at the Team Silence-Lotto training camp in Spain and broke his left collarbone.

That gives the 25-year-old a matched set, as he had broken his right collarbone in a crash in the team time trial at the Tour of Poland in September.

The rider returned to Belgium directly and is expected to undergo surgery Friday in Herentals. If it is not a compound fracture and there are no complications, he is expected to return to his bike soon.
