Mark Cavendish continues to recover from the very hard crash he suffered during the Madison test dispute at the Ghent Six Days. The Briton managed to get up and greet the public after the impact to reassure his health, although the Deceuninck Quick-Step team confirmed on Monday that Cavendish suffered a broken two ribs and a small pneumothorax due to the fall.
This Monday Cavendish himself wanted to reassure the fans again with a message on social networks in which he appears lying in the hospital bed, where it is expected that you will be discharged in the next few hours to continue your recovery at home.
Cavendish appreciated the expressions of affection received and also how he experienced the fall, in addition to highlighting the work of the medical services of the Ghent hospital. “I just want to say that I have been overwhelmed and I am very grateful for the support and good wishes. The Six Days of Ghent did not end the way I would have liked, I think it must be said. There was some water on the track, a fall at high speed and then I rolled a bit. I am being treated for both broken ribs and a pneumothorax. I feel a bit sore, but a couple of nights here in Ghent with the amazing team at the University Hospital should help me get better. “
