"I’m feeling ok except for my ribs which are still hurting since the crash. I’m looking forward to recovering fully and then putting in a good off season to prepare well for next season.”

BMC have provided an update on three of their injured riders.


Richie Porte:

Dr. Max Testa: “Richie is recovering well from his fractured scapular that he sustained in a crash during the Olympic Games road race. He has been gaining more and more mobility of his shoulder and he is functioning pretty well with his normal daily activities. He will likely be back on the bike next week but given the timing of the crash late in the season and necessary recovery period it has been decided between Richie and BMC Racing Team management that he will not race for the rest of the season, especially because for him there are not many target races at this time of the year. The plan is to fully recovery from his injury and get back to training at a normal level in the last few weeks of the season.”


Porte: “I haven’t been back on the bike since Rio in order to let my shoulder fully recovery, but if all goes to plan then I’ll be back on the bike next week. I’m feeling ok except for my ribs which are still hurting since the crash. I’m looking forward to recovering fully and then putting in a good off season to prepare well for next season.”


Stefan Küng:

Dr. Max Testa: “Stefan has been improving very well from his fractured left collarbone and iliac bone sustained when he crashed in the time trial at the Swiss National Championships. Following his surgery, Stefan’s recovery has been monitored by his specialist in Switzerland, in conjunction with BMC Racing Team medical staff, and he has been given the all clear to return to competition at the Eneco Tour having now made a full recovery.


Küng: “I’m feeling really good and I’ve been riding my bike on the road for three weeks now which is going well. I’m just left training camp now where I worked on my fitness and put in some good team time trial training, but I can’t wait to get back to racing this month at Eneco Tour with my shape getting better and better every day.”


Manuel Quinziato:

Dr. Max Testa: “Manuel Quinziato has been recovering from a fractured collarbone sustained in a crash during the Tour of Poland in July. After respecting the necessary time off the bike, Manuel has been recovering very well and is back to a normal training training program without experiencing any pain on the bike. He has been on a team time trial training camp which has helped him to regain more fitness, before he returns to racing at the Eneco Tour.”


Quinziato: “I’m going pretty good. I just finished the first training camp for the team time trial and my shape is pretty good. The injury and the three weeks that I couldn’t ride by bike on the road definitely put my shape backwards. But in this last month I have really improved and these days at the camp I had really good feelings so I think I’m pretty close to 100%. I still have another ten days before Eneco Tour so I think that I’ll really be ready to race and do a good individual TT and team time trial.”
