I really hope he can ride in rio. I'm sure he would have won considering how superb he was so far in the tour TT's. Now froome will win in rio too :(
Froome did very well in the TTs against Dumoulin considering Froome had Ventoux and Finhaut-Emosson before the two TTs while Dumoulin had rest days. It would have been very close between Froome and Dumoulin, and with the distance, I don't think you could count Tony Martin out either. But we've been robbed of that main battle now
 
Dumoulin has a broken radius, but it's a good fracture so there is still hope he can recover in time. He will only go to Rio if he has a chance to win though and he can't train right now. Otherwise he won't go.

What a total bummer :(. He sure was looking good for Gold....now he might not even get there :(

He needs to rip out a page out of the Hayman training systems' manual:

He can continue training, and it sure as hell won't affect his legs. Slight chance it will affect his TT position, and hardly ideal preparation for his bid at olympic gold, but it's not the end of the world for Major Tom

Hard to imagine him being able to get of the saddle to climb - but he seemed to ride almost of all the mountain TT seated, so perhaps not a problem?

It's sad to see someone pay such a price for respecting the race. Was surely on the cards to abandon after winning the TT.....

Dumoulin has been spotted training in his home province Limburg on the cobbles of the Kerkstraat in Eijsden...

Also rumored to ride a criterium in 2 days time as training.
Good news :)

That's just reckless. Criteriums are risky and useless for training for ITTs.

Training on the cobbles? Good sign, shouldn't be too hurt!

It's the post-Tour rigged Crits, fixed outcome, zero risk. He'll just do his thing with no trouble.

Fixed or not, criteriums are always especially dangerous because of the sheer number of corners.

What do you mean, fixed? I'm sure Dumoulin will genuinely outsprint Kittel and Greipel with his sheer ability and natural skill! (At least, if the race is in Holland.)

Don't think he'll do more than firing the opening shot. Still good news he is (apparently) training again.
