The arrival for the Caisse d'Epargne team did not go very well after four men of the team's Giro d'Italia squad were involved in a crash on Thursday. Few details were given about the wreck, which happened at the end of a training ride, but the team announced that David Arroyo fractured his left arm and will not take the start in Palermo on Saturday.

Vladimir Karpets, Francisco Pérez and Joaquím Rodríguez were also involved in the crash on Thursday morning, which occurred at a crossroad just ten kilometers from their hotel in Cinisi. Frenchman Mathieu Perget will replace Arroyo for the Giro d'Italia.
