Collarbone problem won't stop Columbia's American

George Hincapie (Columbia-HTC) will continue in the Tour de France despite being battered after suffering a fall in Wednesday's 16th stage.

“The doc is thinking I have a badly bruised collar bone. Not a great day for me. Tomorrow may be a survival day,” the American wrote on Twitter Wednesday night.

The stubborn 36-year-old was determined to stay in the race at all costs. “He didn't want x-rays because he didn't want to drop out and he wants to continue in the Tour,” team spokeswoman Kristy Scrymgeour told Cyclingnews Thursday morning.

“He is very stiff and sore. We don't really know if it is broken or not!”
