Jumbo-Visma have announced that Tom Dumoulin's season has been cut short as while out on one of his regular training routes, doing a recon ride for his planned Tour de Dumoulin in October, he was hit by a turning car and broke his wrist. 

The Tokyo Olympic Games silver medallist, who has recently rekindled his passion for cycling after a five-month hiatus, had been working toward the UCI Road World Championships this month but now is scheduled to undergo surgery on his wrist Friday.
