Miguel Angel Lopez

After six months spent recovering from a broken tibia, Miguel Angel Lopez finds himself again recovering from injuries after a terrible crash during the fifth stage of the Tour de Suisse.

The long descent Simplonpass saw defending champion Lopez crashing hard, abandoning the race and having to be taken to hospital for checks.

The Colombian was diagnosed with a fractured right thumb and had sustained abrasions to his right side, and also required two stitches.

The talented Astana rider suffered another nasty crash last November after a car overtook the group of riders he was training with.
