The Belgian crashed on the third loop of his home event, 69km into the race.

He appeared to be the only rider hurt in the spill.

“The unfortunate rider incurred a small fracture of the elbow and the collar-bone. For the next few days the elbow will be in a plaster cast, afterwards there will be a check-up,” the team said. “The total inactivity is estimated at six weeks."
