Fuji-Servetto's Jesús del Nero suffered an injury on Wednesday that may cause him to withdraw from the remainder of the Tirreno-Adriatico race.

Del Nero managed to finish stage one in 199th place despite crashing during a descent in Valgiano. Afterward, he was immediately taken to a medical center for further evaluation. Initial evaluation suggested a fracture of a finger on his left hand.

His team was uncertain of his participation in Thursday's stage two.
