The Danish cyclist Magnus Cort crashed on the last stage of Tirreno-Adriatico and thus misses the first monument of the year.

Cyclist Magnus Cort has been injured in a crash and has broken his collarbone.

This was announced by team manager at EF Education on Sunday afternoon on his Twitter profile.

The crash happened early on the 7th and final stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico run with start and finish in San Benedetto del Tronto.

With the expected break ahead, all indications are that he will miss this year’s first monument, Milano-Sanremo, which will be run on Saturday next week.

The Italian one-day race is one of the classics that Cort has participated in the most times.

From 2017 to 2021, he has been with every year with an eighth place in 2018 as the best result.

He had also chosen Milan-Sanremo as one of his big goals for the season, he told TV 2 Sport before the start of the season.

– The few races I have really ticked off are the one-day races. It will be a bit of a new venture compared to the last two years, and it will be Milano-Sanremo that gets the first big cross in the calendar, he said.

The Bornholmer can, however, rejoice that he has already been listed for a victory after the turn of the year.

In late February, he first drove across the line in the Spanish race Gran Camiño, but overall he has been plagued by accidents in the first months of the season.

After his victory, he was tested positive for coronavirus and was on his way back in running form when he crashed on Sunday.

Cort had one of his best seasons in 2021, winning three stages of the Vuelta a España.
