Been a bad year for serious accidents. Horrible luck for poor Pozzovivo as well.
His accident was very bad. Wasn't very public at the moment since everyone was so wrapped up in La Vuelta.I didn't realize he was still in hospital after his crash. Anyway, he's out now, he just doesn't know when he'll get home to Colombia.
When will he return to races?On Colombian television yesterday in an interview he said that his wife and his Mom wanted him to retire after seeing him on the Hospital bed. He has had a number of accidents in the past and his loved ones were very concerned about it. He decided otherwise because he didn't want to make decisions while in the hospital. Additionally he said that he was still climbing with the best and felt that he could give a bit more. However if things don't go right this year he might retire at the end of 2020.
He is already a business man in Colombia so the decision might not be that hard.
Only the good retire young...
Seriously, his record of crashes, bad luck and weird situations is very impressive by now and enough for a fully lived career, and it does not look like he will be back to the 2017 level. So I hope he does have some fun in the remaining time, but it's not really surprising he's thinking about retirement.
What up, this one is looking good so far! Biggest positive surprise by far to me in this race.
Time will tell if you're right or if UranLooks like he can finish second if he follows the right wheels.
