Earlier today (November 4th) American racer Jeremiah Bishop (Volkswagen-Trek) was transferred to CIMA Hospital in San Jose after he crashed 5 kilometers from the finish of Stage 2 at the La Ruta de los Conquistadores.
Bishop was reported in stable condition but will undergo an operation to treat two fractures on his nose and jaw that he suffered because of the accident.
The Trek dealer in Costa Rica, Ignacio Pasos, said that Bishop was descending at high speed on the last downhill and lost control of his bike. Nevertheless, Bishop managed to finish the stage in second place.
â€žHe will be treated in this medical center and will head back to the United States to recover," Pasos explained to La Rutaâ€šs organizers.
