The Spanish cyclist Enara Lpez, 23 years old and incorporated at the beginning of the year to the ranks of the Farto-BTC team, was run over in the province of Burgos yesterday Wednesday while she was training.
Enara is conscious and in full control of her physical faculties. Doctors have confirmed a fracture in the dorsal vertebra 9, which luckily has not affected the bone marrow and, in principle, does not pose serious complications beyond the break itself.
After a complete check-up, the medical team has ruled out that Enara has serious injuries to other bones, ligaments, tendons or joints. Apart from the fracture of the vertebra, the cyclist suffers severe blows to the whole body and the injuries derived from the crash. Brain tests also rule out that the blow to the head had greater consequences.
“It has been a very complicated few hours due to the accident, especially due to the injuries and being so in pain. At first I was very scared; I am lucky to be able to tell it. The good part is all the support I have received from friends, family, team and everyone in cycling. People have turned their heads and for me it has immense value, “explains Enara.
The team manager, Brais Dacal, admits to being “somewhat relieved and calmer. The world fell on me when they told me that Enara was being evacuated by ambulance without knowing how she really was, but luckily the injuries are recoverable. The best has It has been the positive attitude of Enara and her family. They are very strong. They will recover well and go back to fighting on the bike. “
Team Farto-BTC planned to announce the incorporation of Enara in the next few days, but the accident has changed the team’s plans. Despite not being the ideal situation, the Galician team has officially confirmed that the resident cyclist in Villasana de Mena is one of the six cyclists joining its structure this season.
Enara affirms starting 2021 “with great enthusiasm for the trust that Farto-BTC has placed in me and how its human group has welcomed me. I feel very identified with the team’s philosophy and the atmosphere with the teammates is great.”
“The signing of Enara is a huge illusion for us,” says Dacal. “She is a winner, young and has a lot of quality, so she is one of the leaders of the team. From minute one she has fitted in well with the group and her work this winter is being impeccable. Now it’s time to help her recover 100% and that get back to your best level. “
The Vizcanian cyclist treasures a great palmars despite her young age. In 2019, Enara was runner-up in the Spanish Cup and the Spanish Championship in the sub-23 category, in addition to winning the general of the Euskaldun Tournament. Likewise, she played the women’s Giro d’Italia in 2018 and 2019 and obtained a ninth place in a stage of the Tour de lArdche. Lpez raced in the UCI Cronos – Casa Dorada team in 2020.
When asked about his main objectives, Enara does not hesitate to affirm that the first is “without hesitation the Vuelta a Burgos, since racing at home is different; and on the other hand, revalidate the victory in the Spanish Cup, this time in the lite category. “.
