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."

The time trial specialist is now not expected to sit out the Dauphine Libere and his participation in the Tour de France is "strongly endangered," the team's press release noted.
