Team Bahrain Victorious captain Mikel Landa has been discharged from Riccione Hospital this morning and will fly to Spain to undergo surgery to treat his collarbone.
Team Head Doctor Daniele Zaccaria shared an update on the rider’s conditions:
“Mikel spent the night resting well and managing pain. He was submitted for further investigations to exclude PNX and internal lesions, and they were all negative. Therefore, he has been allowed to fly back home. The team arranged a private flight from Rimini to Vitoria, and the medical plan is to undergo surgery tomorrow morning there.
After the surgery, he will start all the treatment needed to have a prompt and safe recovery”.
The Spanish rider was involved in a crash yesterday on stage 5 at Giro d’Italia, sustaining a broken collarbone and multiple ribs on his left side.
