Ben Swift has returned to the UK after his crash in the final day of the Challenge Majorca last week. The British Sky sprinter fell on the descent of the day's final climb and was taken to hospital.

"To be honest, I don't remember much about it. The last thing I can recall was cresting the summit of the Coll d'Honor and then it all gets pretty hazy. I don't remember anything about the crash itself and my first recollections are of a paramedic and doctor standing over me," Swift wrote on his website.
