Lampre-Caffita's Giuliano Figueras has been diagnosed with a micro-fracture of his left shoulder blade, following an accident on Monday June 20, while he was training with some friends in Naples, Italy. Figueras will therefore not be able to participate in Sunday's National Championships, but according to his team is continuing training as he does not want to throw away the last few months of hard work. Figueras was coming into form again after his terrible crash in the Settimana Coppi e Bartali, where he suffered several broken bones.

Figueras will probably get back to racing in a few weeks time and might be ready for the Tour of Austria which will take place from July 4-10.
