Jelle Geens recently faced a crash with his bike. Fortunately, the top Belgian athlete is doing well under the circumstances, but logically he was a bit in shock after the crash.
“Unfortunately I crashed last week, somehow a stick got in my front wheel and I went over the handlebars. Fell quite hard on my shoulder and head, but luckily nothing was broken! I had to take it very easy and try to avoid any stimulus for a while which was mentally very challenging. Luckily I’m starting to feel normal again and this weekend was a big positive. Still having some shoulder pain but hopefully that settles soon as well. In the end I think I got away very lucky and my helmet did it’s job!”
