New Zealand cyclist Greg Henderson will see a doctor overnight to find out whether he'll be able to compete in the road race at the Commonwealth Games.

The Lotto-Belisol rider crashed on stage four of the Tour de France yesterday and had an operation to repair a 12cm cut on his right knee.

He is part of the six-man team to ride in Glasgow on August 1, but the injury has put his availability in doubt.

Henderson told Fairfax Media shortly after the crash that if he's not able to ride again for two weeks he won't be able to go to the Games.

But if he's sidelined for a week to 10 days he's still hopeful of participating.

He had hoped to be able to tell Bike NZ this morning about what his prospects are, but Henderson told Fairfax Media today his surgeon will be able to give him more information tonight and that the situation with his knee is more complicated than expected.

What did you make of the Glasgow Games?

They were awesome. I couldn't get enough of them.

It was great to see NZ do well and I've enjoyed the coverage.

I caught bits and pieces but I'm glad they are over.

They were terrible. The standard of competition was poor and the end couldn't come soon enough.
