Rabobank rider Bram de Groot has suffered his second broken bone in the space of four months after breaking his left forearm in a crash at yesterday's sixth stage of the Volta a Catalunya.

Earlier in February this year, the 30 year-old was involved in a crash on the second stage of the Tour Méditerranéen, where he broke his collarbone. De Groot had only recently returned to competition in May, and coming back in style to take overall honours in the International UNIQA Classic.

Also needed treatment for a deep wound sustained on his left knee, De Groot will return to his home in the Netherlands on Monday, where a decision will be made as to whether he will need surgery on his arm.
