The opening stage of the 17th Challenge Volta a Mallorca brought bad news for the Andalucía-Cajasur team. Jose Francisco Martínez fell with just over one kilometre remaining in the stage and fractured his left clavicle. The rider was taken to a hospital in Palma where team doctor Manuel Pueyo took x-rays and confirmed the diagnosis.
"He has a fracture of the middle third of his left clavicle, as well as a bruise to the left hip," said Dr. Pueyo. The rider was scheduled to undergo an operation to put a plate in to repair the fracture. He is expected to remain in the hospital in Mallorca overnight.
