Germany's Tony Martin was hit by a car while training Wednesday in Varese. The 23-year-old is scheduled to ride Thursday's time trial. While out training, he was hit by a car which ignored its right-of-way at a traffic circle.

The Team Columbia rider was not injured, but his bike was destroyed.

Since he does not have a replacement bike, Martin will ride the bike of German U23 racer Patrick Gretsch, who on Tuesday won silver with the bike.
