IIRC this is the exact same set of injuries that JVDB had in the 2011 TDF crash. Broken ribs, collapsed lung, broken scapula... He had exactly 40 days between the crash and the start of the Vuelta. He clearly wasn't at his best at the Vuelta but still managed to finish 8th in GC.If that's all, I'm very relieved. I know it's still tough injuries, but it sounds like something that can be recovered from. In time for the Tour? Questionable.
