Tadej Pogačar abandoned Liège-Bastogne-Liège after he was involved in a crash about 85 kilometers into the race.

Emirates team officials in the UAE confirmed that Bujar injured his wrist and was being transported to a local hospital.

“[Pogačar] He was involved in a collision and was forced to abandon with a wrist injury. He is on his way to the hospital where he will be examined,” the team’s message read.

There were no immediate details on how the Slovenian hit the ship, but EF Education-EasyPost’s Mikkel Honoré also crashed and abandoned him.

Belgian television reported that Honoré suffered two punctures, taking himself and Bouggar. A later report stated that Pogačar had also suffered a puncture. This information has not been confirmed by either team.

Three riders from Team Emirates initially stopped to wait for Bogar but returned to the group without him after he left the race. Honoré was also forced to give up as a result of the accident.

Bojar had the opportunity to become the third male rider to win the Ardennes Triple after winning the Amstel Gold Race last week and then the Fleisch Walloon on Wednesday.

Remco Evenepoel (Soudal Quick-Step) was also scheduled to face each other for the first time this season, but fans will have to wait a little longer to see the duo battle each other.
