New recruit Patrick Bevin will miss this week’s New Zealand National Road Championships due to injuries sustained in a training crash.

Bevin crashed on Saturday, 30 December, in New Zealand but was fortunate to escape relatively unharmed, BMC Racing Team’s Chief Medical Officer Max Testa said.

“Patrick crashed on a descent in training and was taken to hospital for examination which revealed a deep contusion on his right elbow and some road rash. Luckily, he did not suffer a concussion and the injuries were quite isolated. Although a skin graft was initially considered, the elbow only required stitches,” Dr. Testa explained.

“Patrick will need to stay off the bike for five to seven days before resuming his normal training load. Unfortunately, this rules him out of the New Zealand National Time Trial and Road Race Championships but at this stage, he should be fine to race at the Santos Tour Down Under the week after. We will continue to monitor his recovery in the next week but we expect Patrick to recover quickly.”

Bevin said his injuries could have been much worse considering the circumstances of the crash.

“I hit a melted piece of tar on the road which sent me flying over my handlebars without any warning and I landed on my right elbow. I’m not feeling too bad but I’m a bit gutted about it because you never want to crash in training. I was going fairly quickly so I’m a bit banged up but I’m pretty lucky considering it was a big, wide, and fast piece of road,” Bevin said.

Bevin make his racing debut with BMC Racing Team at the Santos Tour Down Under.
