Calcagni fractures collarbone

Patrick Calcagni (Liquigas), who abandoned yesterday's stage four of the Giro d'Italia after a crash at km 144, has been diagnosed with a broken collarbone. He hurt his left shoulder badly when he fell along with several other riders in the middle of the race just after the feed zone. He continued on at first, but then dropped out of the race with 15 km to go and was taken away to hospital in an ambulance. French rider Nicolas Inaudi (Cofidis), who had crashed earlier in the stage at km 76 and abandoned later, fortunately was spared from any broken bones.
