Loris Vergier Out of the Mont-Sainte-Anne World Cup with a Shoulder Injury

Aug 5, 2022
by Ed Spratt  
Loris Vergier was on a stong run before his crash it would have been very interesting to see where he d ended up if he d kept it upright.

Loris Vergier has announced on social media that he is sitting out this weekend's racing after a big crash in practice.

A crash during yesterday's practice led to some speculation that Loris would not be racing this weekend and we have now had it confirmed from Loris. It sounds like Loris has picked up a shoulder injury from the crash and with this, there will be no Trek Factory riders starting in Mont-Sainte-Anne.

bigquotesThe reason I won't line up to the start. Thought I was fine but my shoulder decided otherwise, first time sitting out of a World Cup (I believe). Loris Vergier


We wish Loris all the best with his recovery and hope he is back racing soon.

 It's crazy to think this track is developing a higher takeout rate than Snowshoe.

3 top tier shoulders destroyed in ~24 hours. Holy shit.

 Less likely to crash, more likely to crash catastrophically if you do

 All that focus on the gnarly rock section to world's-most-awkward-drop only to be taken out by the simple berm after it... I'm gutted for him!!

 That’s 3 top riders out with shoulder type injuries - guess it’s such a fast track that even a slight mistake means going down flippin hard

 It's as if Quebec has something against French riders?

 @korev: from the French part of Switzerland tho?

 @jgoldfield: Yeah, the bit of Switzerland where they speak French.

You wouldn't survive long if you wandered around telling everyone there that they were French though Wink

 @korev: as they say "french canadians", they also like to say "french swiss" (without mentionning the "french belgians")... instead of saying french speaking canadians, french speaking swiss, etc...
If I follow their logic, British Colombia for instance belongs to the English Canadians...
Ignorance is bliss anyway.

 I feel like it not a world cup if Loris isnt racing at anytime he can put down a winning run

 Would rather see him sit out and take the time and medical procedures he needs to be 100% than hurry back and risk another injury.... but in some ways that's the job

 Bruni is out as well. Aside from Aumory, Finn and Bernard have the best shot in a while at the W.

Dak might be also out, DNF.

 @leviatanouroboro: Like Finn that last few years. Finn keeps it on two wheels now. I hope Dak can do that soon.

 @nozes: GOAT? is Rachel Atherton riding?

 @pisgahgnar: yeah exactly, Finn is due for a W any moment here though. Canada might be the place to do it!

 Kerr really deserves a win, it's long overdue.

 Maybe these guys should wear more armor? Nobody really wearing shoulder protection these days, just the light chest/back protectors. Maybe it wouldn’t have help; maybe it would’ve

 Damn, sucks for Loris. Can anyone let me know, does Trek Factory Racing run Bontrager tires or do they do sharpie Maxxis? Loris has had a few surprising wash out crashes (surprising because he is such an amazingly precise and talented rider).

 There is going to be no top riders left at this rate!

 Honestly I wish I'd entered, I could have podiumed provided there were fewer than 5 riders left in the field!

 Still reaping the benefits of shoulder injury due to putting the front wheel over the top of the berm in exactly the same way. You hit the deck so fast there is no time to absorb the impact.

 The crash looks not that hard, but this kind of crash led to a concussion from which i had symptoms several years later because i thought it's only bad for other people if they started riding again immediately... ^^

 Looks like a replay of my crash last week. I can hardly lift my arm above my head, fortunately it’s only soft tissue and I’ll be fine in a few weeks. I hope Loris heals up quickly and can get back at it for Worlds!

 This track is proper. Crazy seeing the top guys get real sketchy on it

 If he was on a 27.5 he wouldn’t have to setup so wide to turn the 29r boat..

 Looks like a replay of the berm at silver MTN that broke my humerus bone

 That doesn't sound very funny or fun.
