Unfortunate conclusion for Katrine Aalerud at Amstel Gold Race

For Team VIRTU Cycling Women´s Norwegian rider, Katrine Aalerud, today´s Amstel Gold Race had a rather unfortunate conclusion. The 23-year-old was in the finale of the prestigious Dutch race when she accidentally crashed downhill at high speed.

Team VIRTU Cycling Women´s DS, Carmen Small says:

“Katrine´s shoulder is dislocated but the head of the joint is fractured, so they cannot put the shoulder back into place before surgery, which is due immediately”.

It was only Katrine´s second race this year and the recovery time will be a matter of weeks at least.
