Vuillermoz abandons Paris-Nice after crash

The cancellation of stage 3 at Paris-Nice didn’t come quick enough to help AG2R-La Mondiale‘s Alex Vuillermoz, who crashed out of the race before it started snowing and before organisers cancelled the stage. The 27-year-old Frenchman quit Paris-Nice after crashing in a descent 80km into the day.

Vuillermoz suffered multiple contusions, mainly on his right lower limb with superficial wounds on his hip, knee and ankles, according to a statement released by the team. He also suffered a cervical contusion that caused muscle contraction. The team’s medical staff will decide within the next 48 hours whether he requires further examination and when he will return to competition.
