Following his crash during stage five of the Tour of Britain Steve Cummings has been discharged from hospital.
He underwent thorough diagnostics at the neurosurgical department in Liverpool and was found to have fractured four vertebrae of the thoracic spine. Luckily no further neurological damage occurred and an operation is not necessary.
Under conservative treatment he now needs to fully recover and will not be able to participate in any further races until the end of the season.
We would like to extend our gratitude for all the messages of support we’ve received for Steve, and wish him a speedy recovery.
