Mandri recuperating from Giro injuries

Estonian Rene Mandri has resumed training after suffering severe injuries in a crash on stage six of this year's Giro d'Italia. The AG2R La Mondiale rider suffered multiple fractures and a pneumothorax in that wreck, and had to recover in France before heading back to his native country to convalesce.

He has since received good news from medical examinations. He was cleared to resume training on a stationary bike, and the only pain he suffers from is his broken radius, which requires a split. He will soon be able to return to training on the road, and is expected to return to competition in August. "I am resuming training little by little, but I am optimistic for the future. In any case, I am motivated to go hard!"
