Johannessen unhappy with defeat

It is currently unknown when the 24-year-old will be able to return to competition, but all spring stage races and classics are at risk until his recovery is confirmed.

Johannessen confirmed with fracture

“Tobias Johannessen suffered a fall during today’s stage of the Tour of the Alpes-Maritimes and suffered a fractured collarbone, confirmed by X-rays at the Nice hospital in the evening,” the Norwegian team shared on their social media. “He has an appointment scheduled for tomorrow with a specialist to decide on the treatment plan. We appreciate your support for Tobias’ speedy recovery.” declared the team.

Uncertain return after accident

It is still too early to make any projections about the athlete’s return. Injuries like Johannessen’s require time to heal, and it is crucial not to rush the return as it can result in recurrences or long-term complications. It is expected that more information about the cyclist’s condition and an expected return date will be released after consultation with the specialist.

With the next races in question, Johannessen’s recovery is eagerly awaited by both his team members and fans of the sport. The hope is that the recovery will be quick and that he can return to competing at the highest level as soon as possible.
