Trentin sidelined due to rib fracture

by Shane Stokes

Matteo Trentin’s debut with the Mitchelton-Scott team has been disrupted due to a crash last weekend in France. “I was training on Saturday with some hill efforts when I slipped on the downhill and went into a stone wall,” he said.

“When I saw I was more or less OK, I decided to try to go home by bike but after one minute I understood something was wrong because I had difficulty breathing. So my girlfriend picked me up and took me to the Monaco Hospital.

“I am on rest at the moment and can’t do a lot but I am not in too much pain if I stay calm. I must thank Philippe Gilbert and Amaël Moinard, who were training with me and were a nice help.”

Trentin moved to the Australian WorldTour team after the best season of his career. He won four stages in the Vuelta a Espa?a, as well as the Primus Classic and Paris-Tours.

The team’s head doctor Robbart van Linschoten explained what will happen next. “Matteo Trentin had a fall in training resulting in a fracture to the right fifth rib,” he said. “He will undertake ten days of rest before further assessment.”
