Maud Rijnbeek was the second rider this season to break her collarbone. We check in with the first year pro to see how she is doing.
I crashed in Scheldeprijs after 75 kilometres of racing. It was a hectic race from the start with lots of wind and echelons. When we were almost at the finish for the local laps we had a short cobbles sector. A girl in front of me crashed and I couldn’t avoid her.
Maud broke his collarbone but the fracture could not be operated on.
I had to rest for ten days. After one and half weeks I did a little tour on my city bike. I was so happy to be back on a bike!
Maud started riding outside on her Pinarello a week ago and her recovery is going well.
I hope that I will get back to my old training level soon. I won’t put a date on it and that’s why I don’t know my schedule just yet. I hope to get some good training days in at the KNWU U23 training camp from 13 May and get ready for new races with NXTG.
