Wim Vanhuffel of Silence-Lotto and Gil Suray of Cycle Collstrop crashed in Thursday's second stage of the Etoile de Bessèges stage race in Southern France, resulting in injuries to both of them. Vanhuffel was able to finish the stage, but examinations showed that he had a badly sprained left wrist. Suray, 23, was taken to the hospital in Alès, where he was treated for heavily bleeding cuts on his face and head. "He must remain there for one night," team manager Hilaire Van der Schueren told Sportwereld, "But fortunately there is no fracture."
