Jonathan Castroviejo, Michal Kwiatkowski and Geraint Thomas were all involved in a nasty crash in the closing stages on day three at the Vuelta al Pais Vasco, with Castroviejo suffering a fractured right clavicle.
Following the scan, Dr Sarriegui outlined the extent of Castroviejo's injuries.
“Jonathan has a fracture of his right clavicle, as suspected. We will get a surgical opinion on that and the likelihood is he will need an operation.
“He's got a few smaller fractures too, although it's unlikely they will need any intervention. One of his ribs is fractured, he has a very small fracture on his left wrist, and he has a stable fracture of parts of his vertebrea. He should go home today, after staying in overnight for observation.”
"The GC is obviously over because it was so close to the finish. There was no chance they could make it back to the group."
I’m OK after the crash, especially considering the speed we were going. I'm obviously a bit sore but it could have been a lot worse.
