Valverde victorious in Catalunya; D’Hoore dominant at De Panne: Daily News Digest
Adam Yates suffered a fractured pelvis in a late-stage crash at the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya, according to a team statement.
Yates underwent consultation with an orthopedic specialist in Girona on Thursday, which confirmed the fracture was stable.
Mitchelton-SCOTT head doctor Robbart van Linschoten remains optomistic.
“Adam has a fracture of his pelvis as a result of his crash but the fracture is stable and won’t require surgery,” Dr. van Linschoten said.
“He will take 10 days of complete rest before we conduct another x-ray to confirm the healing process. At this point, pending results and pain levels, Adam can begin to ride again on the home trainer.”
