True. The driver hit him, put the reverse, hit him again, run over him, reverse again, about twenty times later, he took off having realized that Don Alejandro is the cycling version of the Terminator.What could go wrong with Valverde, the guy is immortal
Everything happens for a reason, they say. After last week’s incident, Valverde will say: „I cannot retire after having experienced THIS in my last season. I‘ll retire after 2023, now - after one further year!“.True. The driver hit him, put the reverse, hit him again, run over him, reverse again, about twenty times later, he took off having realized that Don Alejandro is the cycling version of the Terminator.
Jokes aside, get well Bala. And for his fans, he may decide to leave on his own terms, come back for one more run. How about another Valverde comeback thread? I will vote "Nuclear HolocOust.
Rebellin has confirmed his retirement for October 2022.Everything happens for a reason, they say. After last week’s incident, Valverde will say: „I cannot retire after having experienced THIS in my last season. I‘ll retire after 2023, now - after one further year!“.
It‘s the same story as with Rebellin: Incident - „I cannot retire like THIS!“ - another year - next incident.
Davide had all this in all his last years. Now he‘s almost 51 and does not speak about retirement, any more. And he still achieves Top-10 ranks in 1.1 and 2.1 races.
Alejandro could follow in his footsteps!…
That is some crazy sh*t and dam scary! Hope there's no serious injuries to the riders.Crazy that the driver is an ex-cop. Guardia Civil, to be exact.
El conductor de 69 años acusado del presunto atropello intencional que sufrió el ciclista Alejandro Valverde y dos compañeros del equipo Movistar el pasado sábado en la pedanía murwww.marca.com
The 69-year-old driver accused of the alleged intentional outrage suffered by the cyclist Alejandro Valverde and two Movistar teammates last Saturday in the Murcian district of Javalí Viejo, was a civil guard, as reported to EFE on Tuesday by his lawyer, Ariane Santiago.
Release with charges for the accused
The defendant, who was stationed for several years in the Basque Country and also worked for a time as an assistant at the Murcia Institute of Legal Medicine, was released on Monday with charges after testifying before the head of the Court of Instruction number 3 of the Murcian capital , who imposed the obligation to appear on the 1st and 15th of each month and ordered the withdrawal of the driver's license and the intervention of the vehicle when noticing signs of a possible crime against road safety, injuries and abandonment of the scene of the accident.
His lawyer has insisted today that there was no intentionality in the outrage suffered by the three professional cyclists, although he did not want to explain the circumstances in which the accident occurred and it will be his client who gives his version of the events -has insured - when he recovers emotionally from what happened.
The outrage, according to what EFE learned from sources close to the case being investigated by the National Police, occurred around 12:20 p.m. in the district of Javalí Viejo when some of the cyclists reproached the driver for a reckless overtaking that put them in danger by not respecting the mandatory meter and a half distance to pass them on the road.
Hearing them, the accused braked, backed up and rammed Valverde from behind, who was very dizzy from the blow, and two of his companions, after which he fled along the RM-560 road as he passed through the Murcian district Javalí Viejo.
Hours after the accident he turned himself in to the local police and was detained until he was brought to justice on Monday morning. "When he has the strength he will give his version, but now it is soon because he is assimilating what has happened, he has been detained for 45 hours and he is a man who takes cancer medication and has some ailments," said the lawyer.
Valverde was discharged on Saturday
Alejandro Valverde, 42 years old and facing his last season as a professional, was discharged on the same Saturday night after remaining under observation at the Virgen de la Arrixaca hospital in Murcia along with another teammate, Pedro Moya.
That was amazing. Then his riding at the front of the peloton into Madrid was wonderful to see so he could say goodbye to his fans.Bala and Nibali going through the peloton lined up in two rows was quite a scene. Great champions deserved that.
