Bad crash for Matej Mohoric in the ninth stage of the 2021 Giro d'Italia, Castel di Sangro-Campo Felice. The Slovenian cyclist of Bahrain Victorious, world champion under 23 in 2013 in Florence, had stretched on the compact group and had tried to escape with other riders. But, on a downhill stretch, he suddenly lost control of his bicycle and was thrown forward, falling and hitting his head on the asphalt. The Slovenian was rescued and taken away on a stretcher and then in an ambulance, and it can be said that the helmet saved his life. He was taken to a hospital in the area, and his ds Franco Pellizotti told Rai microphones that "Matej is conscious, he gave us the number of his partner and asked us to notify her. This has reassured us a bit" .
