France’s Amaury Pierron, the reigning UCI DHI World Cup overall title holder, has suffered a broken collarbone and has already undergone surgery. Pierron had a stellar 2022 campaign with four UCI World Cup races and a UCI World Championships silver medal heading his way. Now, only a month into the off-season, he is having to convalesce in what he took to social media to describe as ‘forced rest’.
In the post on his Instagram page, the Frenchman stated that, “Surgery went well, and I already can’t wait for the adventure ahead."
Pierron, who rides for the Commencal Muc-Off by RA squad, has had his battles with injuries over recent years but there was nothing in his post that seemed to state any particular complications or issues with his most recent hurdle. The post negated to state when or how the injury was sustained. The good news for the two-time overall title holder is that time is on his side in terms of recuperation with the first round of the UCI MTB World Series coming 9-11 June in Lenzerheide, Switzerland.
