Mark Renshaw has suffered a fracture that leaves him out of racing for at least two weeks. The Dimension Data rider got injured during a crash at the Scheldeprijs.

The Australian has suffered a fracture in the Talus bone of his right ankle during a crash at 4 kilometers from the finish line. The sprinter was the protected rider of the African team and hit the deck along with his teammates Youcef Reguigui and Jay Thomson, who didn't suffer major injuries.

Renshaw will now travel to Cologne, Germany, where team doctor Dirk Tenner will perform a surgery.

"The surgery will be done in Cologne and Mark will spend two additional nights in hospital under observation before being able to return home. Without any complications, we expect that Mark will be able to start training in two weeks," the doctor explained.
