Tinkoff-Saxo Dane, Matti Breschel had just finished the final stage of Tour of Oman, when he crashed on his way back to his hotel. Matti here explains what happened:

“After the stage, we were riding back to our hotel and on a descent when I was going 70 kilometers an hour, a mattress flew into my front wheel and brought the bike to a standstill. I hit the asphalt pretty hard and lost a lot of skin on my legs and face and the wound on my knee had to be stitched up. It’s still too early to say but I trust it doesn’t influence my preparations for the classic campaign and I’ll stick to my regular training program. I'm not concerned at this moment,” he says.

Matti’s next race will be Paris-Nice.
