On Friday's third stage of the Tour de Romandie from Bienne-Leysin, Saunier Duval-Prodir rider Rubens Bertogliati was one of the riders involved in a mass pile-up close to the town of Yverdon. Although not finishing the stage, it was first thought the 26-year-old Swiss was not seriously hurt, but has now been revealed he suffered a broken kneecap as a result of the crash, and will no longer be able to participate in the upcoming Giro d'Italia.
