  • Mikel Landa wasn't the only one to injure his collarbone at the team's recent training camp it transpires. El Diario Vasco reports ace climber Iván Velasco his the deck and took a hit to his right clavicle - but escaped fracture. The 31-year-old only sustained a fissure fracture, and will hope to resume normal training on Monday. According to the man himself, the crash hasn't set his preparations for the upcoming season back, a season that's set to commence at the Clásica de Almería in February. Velasco will then embark on an exclusive Spanish calendar leading up to his major goal of the year: the Giro. The native of Arrasate will take on Murcia, Catalunya, Indurain, Amorebieta, Castilla y León and La Rioja in the hope of reaching peak form in May.
