Degenkolb and teammates undergo surgery after crash


MADRID: Paris-Roubaix winner John Degenkolb has undergone surgery to repair a deep cut on his leg after he and five other Giant-Alpecin teammates were mowed down by a car whilst training in Spain. German Degenkolb, the team’s star rider, also suffered a fractured forearm in Saturday’s collision with an English driver near Alicante in the southeast of the country. American Chad Haga was airlifted to hospital and underwent successful surgery on neck and chin wounds with an orbital fracture to be treated once the swelling around his eye recedes.
