Two-time world time-trial champion Tony Martin escaped without any fractures despite suffering a nasty fall on the first stage of the Tour de France on Saturday, his Omega Pharma-Quick Step team confirmed.
Despite that, he was suffering from concussion, a contusion on his left lung, widespread bruising, and a deep cut on his left elbow.
As a result, the team admitted that doubt still surrounds his chances of being at the start of Sunday's second stage.
"Tony Martin will join the rest of the team tonight after today's examinations," they said in a statement.
