Alvaro Hodeg (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) is set to return to his home country Colombia to continue his recovery of the injuries he suffered at the Tour de l'Eurometropole.

The Colombian underwent surgery two days ago in Roeselare, Belgium, to fix a fracture he suffered in his right shoulder at the crash in the race. Further examinations didn't show a rupture of the bicep tendon.

Hodge also suffered fractures in the left forearm and in two ribs and he will stay in Belgium a couple of days before flying to Colombia. There he will spend three weeks in a cast and three more weeks off the bike before restarting his training.

"It’s not easy, but what hurts me the most is to finish my season in this way, especially as there were a few more opportunities to add to my 2019 tally," Hodeg commented. "On the other hand, I am grateful that it wasn’t anything worse and want to thank everyone – team, doctors and fans – for their help and well wishes.

"I will now rest and count the days until I can return on the bike and start my preparations for what I hope to be an even more successful season with the Wolfpack."
