Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig

FDJ-SUEZ announced that Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig sustained a sacrum fracture in a crash during the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad race on Saturday 24 February. The medical examinations revealed the extent of the injury, leading to an indeterminate period of unavailability for the athlete.

The team stated that Cecilie’s well-being and complete recovery are their primary concerns. They are dedicated to providing her with the best support and are working on a personalised care and recovery programme to facilitate her optimal recovery and eventual return to competition.

The length of Cecilie’s recovery period remains uncertain, but the team expressed confidence in her ability to overcome this challenge. Cecilie’s exceptional determination has always been evident, and it will undoubtedly aid her as she prepares to return to competition.

FDJ-SUEZ is facing setbacks, having recently been without Marta Cavalli and now Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig sidelined due to injury. Her absence is keenly felt, having started her season strongly with a stage victory at the Santos Tour Down Under.
