Bradley McGee has recovered from the surgery after fracturing his collarbone.

McGee had surgery on Monday and was released from hospital Wednesday. He began his training straight away. On the team's website, team-csc.com, the Australian said that "The operation went well, although it took a bit longer than I had expected. Before the operation we had talked about how important it was for the plate to placed exactly right, because of the way the bone had fractured, so it took a while for them to get it just right. But apparently they've done a really great job so I think it'll work out perfectly afterwards," said McGee, who's had a plate put in his other shoulder eight years ago, after having fractured his other collarbone.

McGee couldn't wait to be back in the saddle. "I'm starting my training program straight away, but I actually got some training in already before the surgery so I'm sure I'll come back even stronger," commented McGee, who will ride the Bayern Rundfahrt next.
