Two days after his fall in the 11th stage of the Back to Spain, Julian Alaphilippe passed a checkup on friday “under the supervision of the medical team of the Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team”. And the news is pretty good for the two-time world champion, with footage revealing nothing more than his dislocated right shoulder. “Julian can start mobilizing the shoulder right away as well as training on his rollers. If the movement and pain are manageable then he should be able to return to full training in the not too distant future.”It is also indicated in the press release issued by the Belgian formation, which leaves little hope for the online race world championshipswhich will take place on Sunday, September 25.

Thomas Voeckler: “It’s a big blow to the head for the French team”

Little hope, therefore to see, therefore to see alaphilippe a worlds and aligned with the World Cup road race scheduled for Sunday September 25 in Wollongong, on the east coast of Australia… that’s whatand coach of the France national team Thomas Voeckler who confessed, this Friday at theAFP,We remain hopeful that Julian Alaphilippe can defend his World Championship title at the end of September in Australia.”

“It’s a big blow to the head for the French team, especially as it was in an ideal phase of approach to the event. has explained Thomas Voeckler with whom I speak Julian Alaphilippe. But all in time, we’ll see if we get him or without him. It was not a trivial crash, it hit hard and of course time is not on our side. But we need more hindsight, it’s still very fresh. I hope he recovers as soon as possible and that we draw conclusions at the right time.. We have a strong thought for him..”

Patrick Lefevere, Thursday: “For the World Championship, it will surely be too short…”

However, the timing will be tight, and even impossible to keep if comments made by patrick lefevere Thursday. “In the best case scenario, he will be back on the bike in a fortnight. For the World Championship it will surely be too short, but it is possible that he will be able to prepare in time for the Tour of Lombardy and the races. It’s bad luck for Julian (Alaphilippe), he has seen more hospitals than he has run this year.”then declared the head of the Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team in the columns of Het Nieuwsblad.

Cyrille Guimard: “I fear that Julián’s crash in La Vuelta is a deeper evil”

columnist of Cycling’News, cirille guimard In the meantime, he had analyzed in more depth the situation in which the native of Saint-Amand-Montrond finds himself. “ohWe can see that for months Julian has been somewhat subdued, so in the end not much will change for the Belgian. I know Julián a little because I had him by my side in the France team when he was a coach in the FFC. Julian doesn’t seem to have his mind on the bike anymore at the moment. Lefevere’s little phrase at the beginning of the return that, even if Julian pretended not to know anything, not only did he pay Alaphilippe to prepare for the world championships, but he was uncomfortable with a cyclist who suffered a heavy crash a few months earlier in Liège-Bastogne-Liège.

“A runner is on fire, he protects himself to regain confidence, even more so after having experienced such a trauma. I’m afraid that Julián’s fall this Wednesday in La Vuelta is a deeper problem and that, apart from the injuries that the medical report will tell us, which will tell us the truth or not. I’m afraid that the World Championships for Alaphilippe, we have to forgetting them or even the end of this 2022 season which will have been very painful in the end for our Frenchman. So, yes, we wish that Julian finds himself quickly and regains his form.”
