Barloworld has lost two riders from the Giro d'Italia with broken bones in their arms, and both are hoping to recover in time to ride the Tour de France. Francesco Bellotti has his fractured elbow in a plaster cast, but hopes to start training again soon.

Last year's Tour de France King of the Mountains Mauricio Soler has returned home to Colombia to heal the micro-fracture in his left wrist. He had a final check up in Italy, with a scan showing the fracture in detail. The 25 year-old has been fitted with a special wrist brace which will allow him to keep on training.(SW)
