"There was no other solution": he puts his finger back in place himself during the Cyclo-cross Worlds


This Sunday, on the route of Hoogerheide (Netherlands), Canadian cyclist Michael van den Ham put his ring finger back in place with his right hand.

He prefers to laugh and surf the buzz.

Canadian Michael van den Ham finished 33rd this Sunday in the men's cyclo-cross Worlds race.

An overall honorable performance, far behind the two titans Van der Poel and Van Aert, but marked by an adventure that has since been around social networks.

The 31-year-old sportsman was finishing the first lap in Hoogehreide (Netherlands) when he fell and dislocated the ring finger of his right hand.

The television cameras then captured him putting his finger right side up in a reflex that may seem insane.

A breath and a dry gesture.

"It's all true (...) There was no other solution to resume the race", laughed Van den Ham in a video on his Instagram account.

The North American also said that his finger had twisted almost 45 degrees, supporting screenshots.

In another post, he showed the "pro" splint that he installed in an emergency... His method?

A pen and tape.

The Canadian runner has been very transparent on his Instagram account.

This gesture is reminiscent of that of Slovenian climber Primoz Roglic during the last Tour de France.

The Jumbo Visma rider had done the same thing to his (dislocated) shoulder after a fall during the Lille-Arenberg stage.
