The reason is a fall in training a Lenzerheide, in which a cervical vertebra was broken. The Frenchman has already been operated on and should make a full recovery. This is what it reports

Amaury Pierron had a bad fall during training before qualifying for the World Cup in Lenzerheide. The Frenchman was then plagued with headaches and neck pains, but he managed to qualify. After that, however, the pain seems to have gotten worse and Pierron has decided not to take part in the race.

Ahead of the World Cup in Leogang, the Commencal/Muc-Off team said they carried out further checks in hospital to ensure the start in Leogang was safe. The doctors noted a broken cervical vertebrae (C5). Amaury Pierron is said to have undergone immediate surgery and is already on the mend. His doctors say he should make a full recovery, but it's unclear how long it will take.

Bad news for the Commencal Muc-Off Team that also has to do without Myriam Nicole, absent due to a long rehabilitation due to a concussion.

We wish Amaury Pierron a speedy recovery!

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
