Tom Pidcock has undergone surgery after breaking his collarbone in a training crash, the Ineos Grenadiers have announced.
The 21-year-old Brit, racing his first season at the WorldTour level this year, suffered the injury while riding in Andorra on Monday. Kurt Bogaerts, Pidcock’s coach, told Sporza that Pidcock was descending “at a fairly high speed” when “he was hit from the side by a car.”
Pidcock underwent surgery on Wednesday in Girona, Spain. He was slated to race the Tour de Suisse, which starts on Sunday, but will miss the planned start as he recovers.
“Tom is doing well and is already looking ahead and focussed on his rehabilitation,” Bogaerts said via an Ineos Grenadiers press release.
“While this means he won’t be able to start at the Tour de Suisse this week as planned, he will get back to training as soon as possible and prepare for the rest of the season.”
