Mylène de Zoete, the 24-year-old Dutch cyclist from Ceratizit-WNT, faces a setback due to a training incident earlier this month in Calpe, Spain. The accident, involving a collision with a vehicle, has resulted in a temporary halt to her cycling activities. Following the crash, initial medical examinations thankfully revealed no severe injuries. However, further assessment disclosed a tear in her quadriceps muscle, accompanied by considerable bruising.

As a consequence of this injury, De Zoete’s training and competitive plans have been put on hold. Her recovery process will continue in Spain, where she will undergo a period of rest and rehabilitation. Ceratizit-WNT Pro Cycling has announced plans to re-evaluate her condition during their team’s training camp scheduled for December.

De Zoete, known for her accomplishments on both road and track, achieved her first professional road victory at the Tour of Chongming Island in October. Additionally, she has secured commendable positions in various races, including the UAE Tour Women, Baloise Ladies Tour, Grote Prijs Beerens, and Binche Chimay Binche, showcasing her prowess as a swift and competitive cyclist.

The incident marks a temporary pause in what has been a promising trajectory for De Zoete, as her team and fans eagerly await her return to competitive cycling following her recovery.
