Bora-Hansgrohe directeur sportif Enrico Poitschke has confirmed that Emanuel Buchmann didn't suffer any fractures when he crashed out of the Critérium du Dauphiné in the same incident that sidelined Jumbo-Visma's Steven Kruijswijk. 

The director confirmed, however, that the many cuts and abrasions sustained by Buchmann, who finished fourth at last year's Tour de France, may prevent him from starting this year's race, which gets under way in Nice on August 29.
