All I know is his sister-in-law (who I've been talking to through messages today said he is being operated on right now for a crushed plate in his clavicle. Granted this is through google translate so possible language issues. This is what she said in Spanish:So... a plate left in from a previous clavicle break?
A very hard day that ends in the worst way possible...
Although the X-rays of Alejandro Valverde at the General Hospital de Alicante did not show at first fractures, the displacement of the plaque on his right shoulder, as well as pain in that area and also on the side, advised to extend these tests with a TAC, which ended up confirming a collarbone fracture. Alejandro will be operated on Saturday in Murcia.
Thanks for all the love towards him and the team. #We Roll Together
Thanks for the update.All I know is his sister-in-law (who I've been talking to through messages today said he is being operated on right now for a crushed plate in his clavicle. Granted this is through google translate so possible language issues. This is what she said in Spanish:
I'm older than Valverde and still want to improve with what I do, but of course - unlike the Don - I've never really been too good at it in the first placeTwo times he’s had an unfortunate crash recently that hampered a potential good GC or stage wins. I hope he can get back but it’s absolutely harder the older we get. Honestly his resolve to continue riding at his age and with still a consistency many lose at 35 is remarkable. I hope at 41 I still have the same drive and motivation for my career and profession as I do at 27.
I believe him, Would like to see him in spanish races like GP Indurain tearing it up like 2014, 2018 or this yearHis doctor believes he'll race next year. He said something about Alejandro doesn't want the bike or injury to tell him he has to stop that he wants to retire on his own terms and not be forced to retire.
Los doctores Esparza y Hernández intervinieron el pasado sábado al ciclista murciano de una fractura de clavícula tras su caída en la Vuelta a Españawww.cope.es
He says he can ride ok in all positions. I assume he feels no pain.I don't know Spanish well enough to translate what he's saying.
Fresh news from Alejandro Valverde, guest this Friday to #LaMontonera from Eurosport. Three headlines; each, better than the last:
′′ Recovery is going well; the collarbone, with the operation, didn't involve much difficulties, but the ribs still bother me and you have to give the body some more time ".
′′ I'm originally planning to return on September 28th at the Giro di Sicily, thinking of getting well to Il Lombardy ".
