The 117th edition of Paris-Roubaix, won by Philippe Gilbert, became one of bad luck for Lotto Soudal. In an effort to return to the head of the race after an earlier crash and puncture, Tiesj Benoot collided with a team car. Examination in the hospital has shown that both the right hip and right shoulder are heavily bruised. There is also a crack in the right collarbone. Besides, Benoot incurred various cuts and bruises. Tomorrow, further examinations will follow to make a definitive diagnosis. The Lotto Soudal rider will not start in the Amstel Gold Race next Sunday.
