García's wrist still in cast

Ricardo García's wrist will still take some healing before he's back on the bike.

Basque daily Deia reports that the 24-year-old will be forced to wear a cast on his wrist for at least another three weeks. The climber, who came over from Orbea in the winter, crashed heavily on stage three of the Dauphiné - a crash that took him out of the race. After a consultation yesterday with an orthopedic surgeon in Bilbao, the native of Vitoria was told to keep the joint immobilized until a new check-up on the 13th of July.

His wrist is not broken though - that would have kept him out of play for a few months - he suffered a fissure, an injury which normally heals faster than a fracture.

"It's an injury that should be given time to heal, as it would be a source of pain otherwise. In addition, the wrist is a very sensitive area for a cyclist", he said.
