He was given a full scan and had several stiches. Fortunately no other adverse affects were found and he will make a full recovery.

“Unfortunately, this heavy crash happened and it had a big impact over team’s strategy in the race. We hope, Michael will get well soon. We were lucky, he did not get too serious consequences after this fall. But, anyway, it was not the only bad luck for us in this race”,  explained Lars Michaelsen from Astana
