Cancellara crashes

Fassa Bortolo strongman Fabian Cancellara came down towards the finish of the fifth stage yesterday, but fortunately wasn't seriously injured. The crash happened with a couple of kilometres to go, as the peloton was winding up for the sprint. "Bernucci and I crashed into a Francaise des Jeux rider who had missed a corner," said Cancellara. "Fortunately I didn't do any damage, save for some skin off on my right hand."

Lorenzo Bernucci commented, "I saw the rider from the French team slide out and I ended up in the barriers. I threw the bike down and I managed to stay on my feet. Fortunately I didn't do myself any harm."
