Victim of a fall, Sunday in the final of the last round of the Challenge Mallorca, Nacer Bouhanni suffers from a cranial trauma. The Vosgien is unlucky, he who had not run since his terrible fall already on the Tour of Turkey, nine months ago.
At this level, it’s not even bad luck, it’s almost a fatality. Be aware: on Sunday, Nacer Bouhanni lined up at the start of the last round of the Challenge Mallorca. An extremely special meeting for the Vosges, since he had not raced in competition since his terrible fall last April during the Tour of Turkey and which had cost him a fracture of a cervical vertebra. Nine months after this very bad memory for Bouhanni, he got on a competition bike for the first time, and guess what? The rider from the Arkéa-Samsic team, decidedly very unhappy lately, fell again, and again very violently. The verdict attests to this, since the former representative of the FDJ suffers from a head trauma, the third in twelve months for the one who had been knocked down by a car in training three months before falling in Turkey. But not only.
Bouhanni not hospitalized at the moment…

The press release from his team indicates that the balance sheet of the 32-year-old French sprinter is even heavier, since the unlucky of the day once again “presents pain in the ribs which will require him to pass a control radio on his return to France. . So maybe Bouhanni was sentenced to several weeks of enforced rest when he finally hoped to see the end of the tunnel and be rid of the misadventures after having “checked all the cases” in terms of bad luck last season, to hear it. Unfortunately, there was at least one more left, with that crash occurring in the finale. The good news, because it does take one, is that the Spinalian shouldn’t have to be hospitalized again. In any case, this is what the first diagnoses suggested. And especially since lately, with Bouhanni, you have to expect everything.
