I have never broken a bone in my body. So i have no idea what the exact prospect is with broken legs, especially since it's not a standard cycling injury, like a broken colarbone. How long does it take for a broken leg to heal?
It's not a standard cycling injury because usually the diagnosis is more specific, like a broken tibia or a broken femur. But of Tao can't determine that by himself.

The reference would be Pantani & Moncoutie.

Then, it's 1 year out and it has to be seen at which level he even returns in fall 2024, the start of 2025 respectively.


But those were very severe fissures I think.

It will depend on which bone—femur is worse than fib/tib usually—and the type of fracture. Bones can heal faster than joint injuries but we’ll know more when he gets a diagnosis.

depends. Contador broke his leg at the Tour but then went on to win the Vuelta. If its a simple fracture, he'll be back later this year (possibly) if its a compound injury... we'll see him next year. If he's damaged some muscles as well...
