After he fell off his mountain bike
After he fell off his mountain bike on Tuesday September 26th late afternoon, Sebastien won't take part in the Rally of Turkey (October 12th – 15th).
“I was riding downhill on a forest path and the front wheel of my mountain bike
got stuck against a rock” has explained the Kronos driver. “I went over the handlebars and landed on my shoulder. I broke the top of the humerus bone of my right arm. It's real tough break. I had an operation on Wednesday morning and saw the doctor who reassured me about my health conditions. The operation went well but I won't be able to participate in Rally Turkey, that's for sure! I hope to be fine very soon!
For now I need to rest. I've cancelled all my appointments at the Paris motorshow and I won't give any interviews for a few days.”
Marc Van Dalen, Kronos Total Citroën WRT team principal, has spoken over the phone with the World Rally championship leader. “The first thing I've said to Seb is that all the Kronos team think about him in this difficult moment. We are looking forward to seeing him come back and wish him well very soon. Regarding his replacement for Turkey, we are actually going through the different possibilities together with Guy Fréquelin and Citroën Sport…”
