ANDRONI GIOCATTOLI SIDERMEC: CHIRICO AND RAVANELLI INVESTED BY A CAR DURING THE TRAINING
Bad luck haunts Androni Giocattoli Sidermec who, starting yesterday, must add the names of Luca Chirico and Simone Ravanelli to the long list of injured in this season finale. The two riders, in fact, were hit by a car while they were training on the roads of Padua in view of the last race of the season on Sunday.
The impact with the car, which came out of a petrol station to get onto the provincial road, was violent and inevitable: the two riders were literally hit and thrown on the other side of the road. Immediately rescued, the two were transported to the nearby hospital in Abano Terme for the first x-ray examinations. Chirico was found to have a compound fracture of the right clavicle, while for Ravanelli there is a suspected fracture of the talus in his right ankle. His condition will be better assessed in a week. The two, for whom, given the dynamics, the consequences of the accident could have been worse, were completing yesterday’s morning training in the company of other teammates and were about ten kilometers from Montegrotto Terme, where the team is staying in these days.
