Mark Renshaw has fractured the Talus bone in his right ankle after crashing out of the Scheldeprijs yesterday.
Renshaw was the protected rider for Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka at yesterday’s Scheldeprijs but a crash at 4km saw our Australian sprinter hit the deck along with teammates Youcef Reguigui and Jay Thomson. While Reguigui and Thomson could finish the race, it was clear Renshaw would be unable to continue.
After further examination, it was found that Renshaw had sustained a fracture to the Talus bone in his right ankle. Renshaw is already on his way to Cologne where our team doctor, Dr Dirk Tenner, will perform the necessary surgery.

Mark Renshaw will undergo surgery because of a fractured Talus bone in his right ankle. The surgery will be done in Cologne and Mark will spend two additional nights in hospital under observation before being able to return home. Without any complications, we expect that Mark will be able to start training in two weeks.
