After a fall in the Tour de France: Roglic puts his shoulder in place

Slovenian cycling star Primoz Roglic dislocated his shoulder when he fell on the fifth stage of the Tour de France on Wednesday.

As the 32-year-old explained after the section characterized by cobblestone passages, he quickly put his shoulder back in place.

“I couldn’t put them right back on the street, so I had to sit in a spectator’s chair,” said Roglic: “I have a certain technique in situations like this.”

Roglic had a bad fall on the stage from Lille to Arenberg, which covered 19.4 kilometers of cobblestones on the route of the spring classic Paris-Roubaix. The tour second from 2020 then lost 2:08 minutes to compatriot and defending champion Tadej Pogacar and thus suffered a severe setback in the fight for the yellow jersey.
