Kim Kirchen's broken collarbone was operated on Friday in Redlands, California. The Team Columbia-Highroad rider crashed in the fourth stage of the Tour of California, breaking his right collarbone and shoulder blade.

"The operation was very successful," said Dr. John Steinman, who conducted the surgery, "and I expect very good recovery from Kim in the next six to eight weeks."

Kirchen is expected to fly home to Luxembourg this week.
