Barredo suffering in Spain

Carlos Barredo had tough day in Spain on Thursday. He finished stage six of the Vuelta a España despite suffering from a fracture in his right scaphoid. The fracture came in a fall near the finish in Puertollano in stage four.

"I have a cast on my right hand, but obviously I can't stand up on the pedals," said Barredo "It's a shame, because otherwise I'm in great shape," he said.

During Friday's rest day, Barredo will undergo further examinations.
