Movistar's Mavi García has crashed during a training ride and the injuries caused by the accident have let her out of the Giro Rosa.

The Spaniard was in Sierra Nevada doing altitude training in preparation for the upcoming Giro Rosa when she hit the deck. The rider fell on her left side, hitting her left shoulder and taking a blow on her head, fortunately, the helmet she was wearing protected her from having more serious injuries.

Garcia was immediately taken to a hospital in Granada, where she underwent preliminary checkups. Scans were done to the Spaniard -including some to rule out any cranial injuries- and they confirmed a broken collarbone.

The rider took the decision to fly to Pamplona, where she had surgery to repair the damage done by the crash with internal fixation. Garcia was set to start in the Giro Rosa, where she finished in the 11th overall position in 2018 and finished in the top five in the tenth stage.
