Pieter Serry Update

Etixx - Quick-Step rider Pieter Serry was diagnosed with a fractured right collarbone when he was examined by team and medical staff at the Hospital Universitari in Girona on Wednesday. The injury was caused by a crash suffered during the 3rd stage of Volta Ciclista a Catalunya. Serry also needed three stitches for a wound above his right eye, as well as a stitch for a wound on his upper lip.

"We were going down the second-to-last descent of the stage and I was on the wheel of Uran, but suddenly a few riders crashed in front of us," Serry said. "Rigoberto avoided the crash, but I couldn't and I was on the ground almost instantly. I am disappointed about my injury to my collarbone, but considering the circumstances and the speed this could have been much worse."

Serry will return to Belgium today and he will pass further examinations in order to fix the fracture to his collarbone.
