I do not know if the driver did not notice our presence, or if she thought that everything would be fine, but the truth is that the accident happened and she was the culprit".

Guerreiro suffers a clavicle fracture that forced him to undergo surgery.

On Sunday Valerio Conti of Team Emirates was the one who suffered an accident in Monaco colliding with a motorcycle and being thrown against a wall. The motorist fled and Conti was helped by another cyclist in the area.
