Alonso, run over while training on a bicycle

Fernando Alonso suffered an accident this Thursday in Switzerland, while training on a bicycle, as confirmed by the Alpine team in a brief statement that calls for future explorations: “Fernando is conscious and in good condition, and is awaiting further medical exams on Friday morning.” It follows that the pilot will spend the night entered. In the first information, ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’ pointed to “possible fractures”, but the team will not expand the information until the results of the tests carried out in the hospital arrive.

The 39-year-old Asturian was preparing his return to Formula 1. The bicycle is one of his training tools, very common for motor racing or motorcycling pilots to work on aerobic endurance and the anaerobic threshold.

The 2021 season of Formula 1 begins next March 28 in Bahrain, although two weeks before, from March 12 to 14, the tests are held at the same Sakhir circuit. The two-time Spanish champion returns to the championship after two seasons of absence with the Alpine team, before Renault.
