Judith Arndt crashed and broke her upper arm in the Giro Donne stage race Saturday in Italy. It was the Columbia-HTC rider's third broken bone of the season.

Arndt, 32, was second overall in the race when she crashed during stage eight. Medics took her to to the hospital, where x-rays confirmed the break. She is scheduled to return to Germany Sunday for further examinations.

There is no indication how long she will be out of competition.

Arndt broke her collarbone while training in Australia in March and broke her wrist in her first race back in April. Prior to Saturday's crash, she won five times, including stage six of the Giro d'Italia Femminile.
