The list of injuries gets longer and longer at Italian stage race Tirreno Adriatico. Jan Kirsipuu (Crédit Agricole), who fell heavily last Friday in the third stage, has apparently broken his left heel. Like many other riders, he too can forget about racing the coming weeks.
Then, a dog running onto the road caused Thorwald Veneberg to crash on the penultimate day and break his collarbone. The 28 year-old Rabobank rider also fractured his ischial bone and suffered a concussion.
