X-rays following a crash at Tour of Flanders U23 confirmed that Sam Dobbs suffered a fractured left wrist. BMC Development Team doctor, Dr. Scott Major provided the following update.

“Sam Dobbs fractured his left wrist, and suffered some soft tissue abrasions, when he was involved in a crash whilst racing for the New Zealand national team at Tour of Flanders U23. Fortunately no surgery is required at this stage but he will need to immobilize the fractures for a few weeks to allow them to heal."

"Sam will need up to six weeks off racing but I'm hoping that we can get him on the rollers in a few days and training outside in a few weeks. We will continue to monitor Sam’s recovery progress and with any luck he will be able to return to racing sooner than expected.”
