Cycling: Kämna no longer in intensive care after collision with car

German rider Lennard Kämna, victim of a collision with a car on Wednesday during training in Tenerife, is better and has been released from intensive care, his team Bora-Hansgrohe announced on Sunday.

“Lennard Kämna's state of health has evolved positively in recent days to the point that he has been able to leave the intensive care unit,” the German team said in a press release.

The 27-year-old rider, stage winner of the Tour de France in 2020, however remains in hospital in Tenerife.

He suffers in particular from “serious chest trauma with rib fractures and pulmonary contusion,” Bora said.

“Lennard has taken a big step forward. The fact that we were able to be transferred to a normal unit is very good news,” commented Ralph Denk, the team manager.

Kämna was hit by a vehicle on Wednesday that “swerved into the left lane” while he was riding with several teammates during a training camp on the Canary island.

No other rider was involved in the accident which occurs in a painful context for professional cycling, marked by numerous falls with serious consequences in recent days.
