Mario Aerts was one of many to go down on the road in to Montpellier in stage 11 of the Tour de France but was able to finish the race even with fractured ribs. The Belgian Predictor-Lotto rider picked himself up and continued not only the stage but all the way to Paris. The pain didn't let up, though, and he had himself x-rayed after returning home. The exam revealed that he suffered two broken ribs in the fall.
Since there is not really anything to be done to promote healing, he won't change his riding plans, according to Sportwereld. So he may well be riding Clásica San Sebastián this weekend, broken ribs and all.
