Steven de Jongh, former pro racer and current Trek-Segafredo sports director, has been found after going missing on Monday near Girona, Spain. After heading out for a ride in the morning and not returning, he was located several hours later and taken to a hospital. He had suffered a concussion, but no broken bones.

De Jongh’s wife Renee Meijer appealed to Twitter for help finding de Jongh at around 3 p.m. local time, noting that he had been missing since 10:30 a.m.

Twitter users used Strava to determine his last known location. Local emergency services were also notified.

According to Meijer, a Catalan fire department helicopter found de Jongh. The circumstances of his apparent crash remain unclear.

De Jongh, 44, was a classics specialist during his pro career, which stretched from the mid-90s through 2009. He won the E3 Prijs in 2003 and two editions of Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne before retiring and transitioning into a sports director role.
