"I'm in the last training period for the Olympic Games where I'm going to compete in the Team Pursuit. All is going well, my condition is getting better and better and my finger doesn't disturb me at all."

BMC have provided updates on their three injured riders.


Silvan Dillier:
Dr. Testa: "Silvan suffered a fractured finger in the Giro d'Italia which forced him to abandon the race. He has recovered very well and took the necessary precautions in order to be back at his normal level ahead of the Olympic Games."
Dillier: "I'm in the last training period for the Olympic Games where I'm going to compete in the Team Pursuit. All is going well, my condition is getting better and better and my finger doesn't disturb me at all. I had great support from my hand specialists in order to get the best result in the shortest time, so I'm 100% ready for Rio and the upcoming races."
Stefan Küng:
Dr. Testa: "Stefan crashed heavily during the Swiss National Time Trial championships, sustaining a fractured collarbone and iliac bone which required surgery. He is doing well and all of his injuries are steadily improving. He will have a check up with his surgeon next week and at this stage he is limited to training on the rollers until around mid-August. He is progressing well, is in good spirits and is motivated to have a good end to the season."
Küng: "I'm feeling good and have made a lot of progress in the last two weeks. I still have a bit of pain but I'm taking things one day at a time on the rollers and am looking forward to getting back on the road around mid-August."
Manuel Quinziato:
Dr. Testa: "Manuel sustained a shoulder injury at the Tour de Polonge. He injury has since been evaluated by a shoulder specialist and X-Rays revealed two non-displaced minimal fractures of the shoulder. He will need to rest before he can get back on the rollers and doing physical therapy. At this stage no surgery is needed and we will continue to monitor his improvement over the coming weeks."
Quinziato: "I'm feeling pretty good, especially since it was confirmed that no surgery will be necessary. I'm not really in pain which is a good sign because it means the fractures are stable. I'm going on long half-marathon walks and this is definitely helping me to keep my shape before I can get on the rollers. I have to keep my shoulder and arm in a brace for another three weeks and then we can reassess my recovery, but I'm staying really positive and looking forward to recovering well before the UCI World Championships."
