Caisse d'Epargne's Txente García Acosta and Team Lampre-NGC's Mirco Lorenzetto were injured during the Tour of Flanders on Sunday.
García Acosta abandoned after he was injured in a crash at kilometer 140. The unlucky rider from Navarra was transported by ambulance to a hospital in Zottegem, where x-rays confirmed that the head of his left radius bone was broken. His arm was put into a cast by a surgeon and he later returned to the hotel to join his teammates after the race.
Sunday was an unfortunate day for Lorenzetto, too. He also had to withdraw after a crash. Lorenzetto was attempting to remove a layer of clothing near the first feed zone when the garment got caught in his bike and brought him down hard.
"Mirco suffered cranio-facial trauma on his left side," said the Lampre-NGC's Dr. Andreazzoli. "He also has injuries to his left shoulder and pelvis. He will be kept in the hospital until Tuesday for further evaluation and observation."
