“We confirm that Iván Sosa was treated for chin injuries at a medical center in Fusagasugá (Colombia), his hometown, after the incident suffered this Thursday,” the team wrote Thursday.

“The Movistar Team cyclist has remained conscious at all times. Good luck, friend!”

Daryl Impey is pedaling into his last season. The South African veteran confirmed Thursday he will put a stop to a 17-year pro career at the end of 2023.

“2023 is about to begin, I’m excited about it for many reasons. It will be my last and I’m looking forward to emptying the tank one more time,” he wrote.

Impey, 38, spent much of his career with the GreenEdge franchise, representing the team in eight Tours de France in nine years.

He became the first African to wear the race’s yellow jersey when he pulled on the maillot for two days in 2013 and won a stage six years later. The Johannesberg-born climber also won multiple national road and TT titles.

Impey moved across to Israel Premier Tech at the start of 2021 to ride alongside his longtime friend Chris Froome. He will retire with the Israeli squad.
