Mark Cavendish has said he is "relatively okay" after colliding with a car while training in Italy.
The incident happened when a car braked suddenly in front of the 2011 world road race champion, who last month left Team Sky for Omega Pharma-Quick Step.
The 27-year-old from the Isle of Man wrote on Twitter: "Went & hit the back of a car that slammed on today in training. Wasn't ideal. Apart from a bruised arm, I'm relatively ok. If anyone cares."
Cavendish, who has now travelled from his home in Tuscany to California, also announced his engagement to former model Peta Todd this weekend.
He becomes the latest high-profile name in cycling to collide with a car while on his bike after a spate of similar incidents recently.
