Our Eritrean rider Mekseb Debesay is yet to return home following his major crash during the Tour de Langkawi earlier in the week and sustaining a serious injury.
For now he remains under medical care in Malaysia, as the team’s Dr. Dirk Tenner explains:
“After further scans we can confirm that Mekseb sustained a fracture to the pelvis, after crashing on stage 4 of the Tour de Langkawi.
“Mekseb will undergo surgery here in Kuala Lumpur on Monday, to stabilize the fracture. He will then need to spend a few days under observation before flying back to Italy to begin his recovery and rehabilitation.”
