Jan Tratnik out of the Giro d’Italia

Unfortunately, Jan Tratnik is forced to abandon the Giro d’Italia on stage 3 (Kaposvár > Balatonfüred) due to the injury caused from the crash he was involved in the last km of the opening stage.

The Slovenian ITT Champion suffered bruises and felt pain in his right wrist and hand. Nevertheless, he tried to ride yesterday’s time trial in Budapest and to be at the start this morning on the third stage in Hungary.

Due to the pain in his wrist and difficulties gripping the handlebar in a brace, Tratnik decided to abandon the Giro.

He will undergo further examinations on the injury.
