Eddie Dunbar has again been left counting the cost of an early season crash at Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana (2.Pro), after crashing out of the same race last year on debut for Team Jayco AlUla.

The Irishman was among a number of fallers with about 35km to go on the second stage of the race yesterday; some 162.7km from Canals to La Valldigna.

While he managed to right himself, got back on his bike and even back into the peloton, he was then tailed off again in a hectic finale, losing 5:51, though the news is now worse for the Irishman.

His team has confirmed this morning he will take no further part in the race, opting to rest and recover towards bigger goals in the months ahead rather than soldier on injured for the next three days.

“Unfortunately, Eddie Dunbar will not take the start of stage 3 of the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana today,” his team said in a brief statement on Friday morning.

“Dunbar was assessed by the doctor after crashing during yesterday’s stage 2 and the decision was made for him to rest and recover ahead of a busy season.”

More to come.
