Julian Alaphilippe He had to abandon the Vuelta after a fall. The Frenchman has fallen in the middle of the calm. Routine days are often very dangerous. Nothing ever happens until everything crashes. The future is inscrutable, an enigma. Alaphilippe went down on a curve as he passed through a village and he hit hard on the asphalt. Crack. His right shoulder was dislocated due to the impact.
The Vuelta medical team he immobilized his arm with a sling. The Frenchman is haunted by the curse of the World Champion. The rainbow of him in a fade to black this course. He suffered a very hard fall in Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
GOODBYE TO THE WORLD CUP?
When he returned to his best profile as a valet for Evenepoel, has splintered on any given afternoon. Alaphilippe was comforted by the applause and cheer from the crowd as he was ushered into the ambulance.

With the Australian World Cup With just over three weeks to go, it seems unlikely that the two-time World Champion will arrive in time to compete and defend his last two crowns.
