Collarbone fracture for Sutherland
31 January 2015

Injury report

Australian crashes during Trofeo Serra de Tramuntana on Saturday, will travel to Girona tomorrow to undergo checks on possible surgery

The worst news on day three of the 2015 Mallorca Challenge for Movistar Team came early in the race as Rory Sutherland crashed into the descent of the Coll d'En Claret (Cat-3), after just 17km. The Aussie rider, only in his second day in Blue colours, had to be moved by ambulance to the Clínica Rotger in Palma de Mallorca, with acute pain in his left shoulder.

X-rays on Sutherland confirmed a distal left collarbone fracture, which will force Sutherland to travel back to his home in Girona tomorrow, in order to undergo more profound checks to decide on the need for surgery.
