Pioneering Dutch cyclist Amy Peters, 30, was put in an artificial coma after undergoing surgery as a result of the ugly coup in Spain on Thursday.
This was stated by the Peters SD Workx team.
The 30-year-old flipped during a training trip in Calpe, Spain and underwent surgery in Alicante on the same day. It’s not clear how common Peters’ injuries are.
– When the doctors wake her up in a few days, it will be possible to assess for any injuries, says team management.
A number of media reported, Thursday evening, that she was unconscious when she was taken to the hospital in Alicante by an ambulance helicopter.
The Dutch Cycling Federation writes on its website website She underwent head surgery, but did not elaborate on the extent of the damage.
The accident was said to have occurred when she was involved in an intra-team collision, falling off the bike on a training trip with the Dutch national road cycling team.
Former professional cyclist Chris Anker Sorensen died in an accident: – Incomprehensible and incomprehensible.
They were in Spain for a training camp, and the accident is said to have taken place near the town of Calpe.
Her Team SD Workx posted the following Thursday night message:
“At the moment, no further statements can be made about the incident, and we will ask everyone to respect the privacy of those involved. Of course, everyone at Team SD Worc is thinking about Amy and her family.”
Pieters has delivered very strong results both on the road and on the road through a long career. Most recently in October, she took World Cup gold on track in pairs with Kirsten Wild.
She also became the Dutch road champion earlier this year.
Amy Peters’ father, Peter Peters, and brother, Roy Peters, also cycled on the upper level.
The day before the accident, she posted the following message on her Instagram account:
“Infuriatingly humble internet trailblazer. Twitter buff. Beer nerd. Bacon scholar. Coffee practitioner.”
