Cherel and Danilo Hondo of Lampre-ISD crashed with just over 3 km to go on the Champs-Élysées. Hondo suffered facial injuries but no fractures.

Cherel was at first believed not to have suffered serious injuries, but persistent pain led him to have further examinations. An incomplete fracture is one in which the bone fragments are still partially joined.

The 26-year-old will now rest for three weeks “before considering a return to competition.” His injury and recovery process will be reviewed within the next 10 days.
