Broken foot for Lang

Sebastian Lang's foot hurt after he crashed in the second stage of the Volta a Catalunya, but he rode the race to the end. The foot still hurt, however, so the Gerolsteiner rider finally had it checked out Thursday -- and got the bad news. An MRI showed that he had not only broken the heel but also had bleeding within the bone tissue.

"At least now I know the reasons for my pain. But it is still a real blow," he said. "This is not how I had planned my season."
