Cavendish out of race

7 Jul, 2014

As a result of the crash on the first day of the race, Cavendish dislocated his shoulder and is out of the race.   In a Twitter post, his team, Omega Pharma-QuickStep (OPQS), confirms that the MRI scan shows torn ligaments and an AC-joint dislocation.  Cavedish says:

Normally I bounce well but when I was on the floor I knew something was wrong. My shoulder was sticking out the way it shouldn’t.  I had some optimism that it would just be swelling but this morning was worse. I’m gutted.
