Italian sprinter doesn’t need surgery and could return to road training in ten days’ time

Sacha ModoloItalian sprinter Sacha Modolo – who beat Mark Cavendish to win a stage of the Tour de San Luis – has received some welcome news in relation to the scaphoid fracture he suffered on stage one of the Tour of Qatar. The Bardiani CSF rider went to a clinic in Brescia, Italy, for a more precise examination of his injury and while it confirmed the fracture, it was deemed that surgery is not necessary for it to heal.

Modolo hit the deck 60 kilometres from the finish of stage one and had to ride the rest of the stage holding onto his handlebars with just one hand. It was initially feared that his programme would be seriously affected but his team has said that he will be able to resume working on an indoor trainer and could return to riding on the road in just ten days time.

“The goal of Modolo and his team is to return to racing at the GP Lugano, which will take place next February 24th, in trying to restart the right journey to Milano – Sanremo,” said the team. It added that this would be the first top goal for him this season, showing that the team has not lost hope that he can be ready in time.
