Spaniard Oscar Pereiro's Tour de France ended Sunday when the Caisse d'Epargne rider crashed on the descent from the Col Agnel. Pereiro crashed over the barricade on a rain-slickened switchback and fell down a rocky embankment to the lower part of the road. He suffered a displaced fracture to his left humerus, the bone between the elbow and the shoulder.
Pereiro, who was declared winner of the 2006 Tour after the disqualification of American Floyd Landis, was lying in 15th overall at the start of the Tour's stage 15 from Embrun to the Italian town of Prato Nevoso. Following his crash, he was airlifted to a hospital in Turin, where he will undergo further tests to determine the extent of his injuries.
