Sonny Colbrelli from BAHRAIN MERIDA crashed during training

During today’s training Sonny Colbrelli was involved in a minor car accident.

The Italian rider suffered a number of bruises on the left side and a right big toe contusion.

“It really hurts, but on Sunday I will be certainly at the start of the Ronde van Vlaanderen”. It’s a Sonny Colbrelli very determined that talks about the accident that happened this late morning, a few hours before his departure for Belgium.

“I was training behind the car that suddenly had to brake to avoid another car ahead. I could not stop in time and in the crash I was hooked to the bumper. The car dragged me for about ten meters and then I managed to free myself.”

“He broke part of the nail – explains Dr. Carlo Gurdascione – and it’s obviously painful. Most likely we will have to cut off the shoe to allow the athlete to decompress the part that hurts.”
