Trek-Segafredo have all but ruled out Bauke Mollema returning to action again this season after their Tour de France co-leader crashed out of the race on stage 13. 

The Dutchman came down in a fall that included Romain Bardet with roughly 86km remaining on Friday. Bardet continued but was later pulled from the race after hospital checks after the stage revealed that he had sustained a concussion.
