During training on Thursday in Spain, Andrey Amador (EF Education-EasyPost) had a big accident and hit a truck. The Costa Rican would suffer several fractures as a result.

Very big scare for Andrey Amador. Indeed, while he was training this Thursday in Catalonia (Spain), the 37-year-old Costa Rican was the victim of a big and very impressive accident. Near Barcelona, ​​on the roads of La Garriga, the rider from the EF Education-EasyPost team apparently went under a truck after slipping. At least that’s what his team communicated on the subject. “ Amador slipped on a gravel climb, his bike went under a truck and his foot was crushed », Specified the American team in a short press release published on its X account (formerly Twitter). An image of Amador’s bike, completely crushed by this terrible accident, has since been circulating on social networks. It clearly attests to the impressive nature of this accident suffered by the one who notably passed through Movistar and Ineos Grenadiers in the past.

Amador suffers from several fractures

If the days of the one who wore the pink jersey for one day during the Tour of Italy in 2016 would not be in danger, the latter still seems to have escaped the worst. According to Isaac Vilalta, a journalist for Catalunya Radio, the Costa Rican would however suffer from several fractures (to the tibia and fibula, and perhaps even to the foot). “Beyond that, his state of health is not serious,” the latter subsequently added. Quickly taken care of, the rider from the EF Education-EasyPost team has since had surgery and is therefore expected to be out for a while. This accident recalls in particular that of Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers), who was hit by a bus during training in Colombia in January 2022. Since then, the winner of the Tour de France in 2019 and the Tour of Italy in 2021 struggling to get back to his best level. More recently, the German Lennard Kämna (Bora-Hansgrohe) also had a road accident in Tenerife (Spain).
