Bad luck in Catalunya

The victim of a crash during the second stage of the Volta a Catalunya, Alejandro declared after the finish:

“Just as we were heading out of the feeding zone, there was a bottle on the road, the front wheel got over it and I crashed on my right side against en edging. It was practically an inevitable crash. I got on my feet again but I was feeling mostly dizzy after the crash, and I lost some time to depart again. I was a bit out of consciousness, it was hard to get back on racing pace and that’s why if was difficult to bridge. I want to thank all my team-mates; it’s a pity, because we could have done really well here. These things happen: sometimes everything’s good, sometimes everything goes wrong. The route was really good for me, but this is a rider’s life. Leaving the bad side apart, we have to be happy. I have much pain, especially in the right side, in my shoulder. Let’s see how we rest and wake up to value tomorrow what we can do.”
