Uran on the mend

Rigoberto Uran ( has surprised his doctors by making strong progress in recovering from his injuries the Colombian obtained at the Deutschland Tour. Uran made a spectacular exit from the German race when he flew off the road during the descent from the Riedbergpass, smashing with both arms into a retaining wall. The horrifying crash left Uran with two broken elbows and a broken wrist, and a crack in the back of his neck.

"Additional examination also showed a crack in the back of his neck, but it's absolutely harmless," said team doctor Andrei Mikhailov. "The fractures are healing surprisingly well. Uran is visiting the hysiotherapist the next two weeks and may return to some road training within four weeks."

The Columbian youngster is recovering at his European home in Brescia, Italy.
