Magnus Sheffield exits the hospital following a high-speed incident during the Tour de Suisse.

Magnus Sheffield, an American, has been released from the hospital following a high-speed incident during stage five of the Tour de Suisse.

Swiss Gino Mader, who died on Friday at the age of 26, was also killed in a crash on Thursday’s stage as cyclists descended from the Albula Pass in the Swiss Alps.

Sheffield, 21, sustained a concussion as well as soft tissue injury.

According to the Ineos Grenadiers, their rider will “return home for a period of rest and recovery.”

“At this time, our thoughts are with Gino Mader’s family, friends, and loved ones, as well as our colleagues at Team Bahrain Victorious,” Ineos stated.

Following the cancellation of Friday’s stage, the event resumed on Saturday, with organizers announcing that the last two stages will take place.

Bahrain Victorious, Mader’s squad, has withdrawn, as have Tudor Pro Cycling and Intermarche-Circus-Wanty.

Remco Evenepoel, the world champion in road racing, won a somber stage seven on Saturday, looking to the sky as he crossed the finish line in Weinfelden. Mattias Skjelmose of Denmark leads the overall standings.
