Clavicular and scapular fractures confirmed for Egan Bernal

Egan Bernal injury

Egan Bernal (Team Sky) has suffered clavicular and scapular fractures in the crash he sustained at the last stage of the Volta a Catalunya, his team confirmed.

“Obviously I’m a little disappointed because it could have been my first WorldTour podium and I’m sad because I felt really good and strong until the last day. But the team gave me so much confidence throughout the race and my teammates did a great job all week. That’s left me really happy.

“I already feel a little better today and I feel relatively good, because it was a strong blow and I know it could have been a lot worse.

“It’s important to think positively now and prepare myself for my next block of racing. I don’t know exactly how long the recovery period will be but at the moment I’m focusing on resting and recovering well.”

“Egan obviously took a heavy impact on his shoulder and we wanted to make sure we took time to get that properly checked out”, Team Sky Doctor Iñigo Sarriegui said.

“Unfortunately, he has sustained a clavicular and small scapular fracture and so we’ll be making sure we get specialist opinion on the best next steps for Egan’s recovery and rehabilitation.”
