Caisse d'Epargne's young Colombian rider Rigoberto Uran underwent a successful surgery this week in Brescia, Italy to remove plates in his elbows and left wrist which had been put in place after his crash in the Tour of Germany last year.
"The surgical operation proceeded perfectly and I have no pain at all," explained Uran. "In about ten days from now the doctor will remove the suture points and I will be operational again. My mental is very good and I hope to realize a great season in order to deserve the confidence and the hopes of my team Caisse d'Epargne," concluded Uran.
The rider will return to Colombia on Saturday where he will stay for a few weeks before returning to take part in the European calendar.
