Tyler Farrar crashed out of the Milano-Sanremo after 100 kilometres on Saturday. Doctors took the American of team Garmin-Slipstream, an outside favourite for the race, to the hospital in Ovada, Italy, with a suspected fractured collarbone.
He "injured his shoulder, but he had an x-ray Sunday morning and it is not a broken collarbone. More to come as he sees a shoulder specialist," reported the team's doctor, Prentice Steffan
Farrar surprised many with his win over many of the sport's best sprinters on stage three of the Tirreno-Adriatico. He explained that his goals for the season were back North with the Ronde van Vlaanderen, Gent-Wevelgem and Paris-Roubaix.
