Luke Rowe to miss 2018 Classics campaign after major injury - News shorts

Speaking on his Facebook page whilst recovering at home, Luke Rowe (Team Sky) detailed the injuries sustained whilst on a white water rafting trip at his brother`s stag party. The 27-year-old road captain helped Chris Froome to his fourth Tour de France last month, finishing the race in last place and being awarded with the lanterne rouge. Rowe, with a large cast around his leg, described a litany of injuries.`[A] tibia, fibula, five metatarsals and a bit in between. It`s pretty bad; I don`t do things by halves. It`s a mess, but we`ll get there. `The team has been top draw; they flew a doctor straight out to me and then got me back to Cardiff. I`ve got a long road ahead with rehab, a lot of time in the gym and with the physios.`ADVERTISEMENT Rowe had a strong start of the year, winning a stage at the Herald Sun Tour in January, before a top-10 at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and a podium finish at Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne. However, he is now likely to miss the entire 2018 Classics campaign and season openers but could feature towards the latter part of the year. `The goal is to get racing next year for sure,` he explained. `The start of the season will be tough, but mid or end of the season, I`ll be back on the bike.` Follow the Vuelta a Espa˝a live with Cyclingnews Warbasse shows off new stars-and-stripes kicks - Larry Warbasse (@larrywarbasse) August 17, 2017 DimensionáData behind Boasson Hagen in Cyclassic Hamburg You can read more at Cyclingnews.com
