Leading Kiwi road professional Sam Bewley is optimistic of a hassle-free recovery after breaking his arm during a tour in Spain.
Bewley crashed out in the fourth and penultimate stage of the Tour of Valencia over the weekend after being forced off the course at a corner.
The 30-year-old World Tour rider hopes he won't be sidelined for long from representing his Mitchelton-Scott team.
He said on Twitter it was a "shame" to suffer the injury but it could have been worse.
"Prognosis is positive, no surgery needed and hopefully on the road again soon."
Bewley, who has won track bronze medals at two Olympic Games, had previously made himself unavailable for the looming Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.
