Trek-Segafredo's DS Steven de Jongh found unconscious in a ravine

Trek-Segafredo Director Sportif Steven de Jongh found unconcious in a ravine by rescuers using his Strava data

Earlier today, Steven’s wife Renée posted a message on Twitter to ask for help in the search for her husband who went missing around noon.

Strava records showed his ride had stopped abruptly in a descent close to La Ganga. The local police reacted promptly and started a search operation at that precise spot. Late afternoon a helicopter found Steven lying in a ravine, unconscious, but with a pulse and breathing.

De Jongh was brought to consciousness by the paramedics and transported to the hospital in Girona, where further examinations showed that he suffers from a severe concussion.

Trek-Segafredo is relieved to announce that their DS, Steven de Jongh, did not sustain more serious injuries other than a concussion in the crash during his training ride today close to Girona, Spain.

He complains that “everything hurts right now” but thankfully no broken bones have been revealed.

As for now, the conditions of the accident still remain unclear, but it is likely that de Jongh somehow crashed on the descent and went into the ravine.

Trek-Segafredo released an official statement and "Wished Steven a speedy and complete recovery."

De Jongh has been a staple on the cycling scene for decades. He won the E3 Prijs Harelbeke in 2003 and twice was victorious at Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne. He turned pro in 1996 and retired from racing in 2010 after spending his final year on Team Sky. He’s been with Trek-Segafredo for the last few seasons and also previously worked with Alberto Contador during the Tinkoff-Saxo Bank years.
