Dan Martin was optimistic of a strong conclusion to the 2014 season after undergoing surgery on the broken collarbone suffered on stage one of the Giro d'Italia.

Birmingham-born Irishman Martin and his Garmin-Sharp team-mate Koldo Fernandez went under the knife after each fracturing their collarbones in the team time-trial in Belfast last Friday after crashing on a slippery drain cover.

For Martin, who was Garmin-Sharp's joint leader in the race, it was a particularly painful episode as he had high expectations for the Giro which began in Belfast and also visited Dublin.

Martin will refocus, although his season's schedule and possible participation in the Tour de France, is still to be clarified.

He said in a Garmin-Sharp statement: "Unfortunately my Giro was cut short by an accident that we were lucky to come away with relatively light injuries, collarbone fractures for myself and Koldo.

"It's the first time I've broken a bone but I'm certain to bounce back better then ever with the circle of support I've had from the team, family, friends and my incredible fan support.

"As always I strive to find the silver lining. Success will be even sweeter later in the year after such a rough period the last few weeks.

"Have to take the downs with the ups in this sport so time for a mental reset and I'll be back."
