Daniel Martin saw all his hopes of Giro d'Italia success getting dashed when he crashed out of the race in the opening team time trial. Having had a successful operation on his broken collarbone, he now reflects on the incident and is sure that he will bounce back even stronger.

 

Dan Martin and Koldo Fernandez had surgery on Monday to repair the broken collarbones they each suffered during the Giro TTT.
Both are currently recovering at home. It is too early for the team to make any decisions on their race programs. The health of the athletes is the top priority and right now the team is focused on their recovery. 
 
"Now that the dust has settled on my operation I've been able to look back on the Giro start in Belfast with obviously incredible memories of the team presentation, the team work, the camaraderie of my team and the incredible noise and support enjoyed in the TTT," Martin said. "Unfortunately my Giro was cut short by an accident that we were lucky to come away with relatively light injuries, collarbone fractures for myself and Koldo. Once more, the spirit of this team through such hardships has blown me away and I'm confident the remaining 7 riders will go on to do incredible things during the remaining 3 weeks.
 
"For myself and Koldo, we were successfully operated on Sunday and are on the road to recovery, with a steady supply of treats and hugs for us both from the team, my family and friends from cycle4life. It's the first time I've broken a bone but I'm certain to bounce back better then ever with the circle of support I've had from the team, family, friends and my incredible fan support.
 
"As always I strive to find the silver lining. Success will be even sweeter later in the year after such a rough period the last few weeks. Have to take the downs with the ups in this sport so time for a mental reset and I'll be back.
 
"Thanks again to everybody for the incredible support and I look forward to watching Garmin-Sharp rip up the Italian roads the next 3 weeks!"
