Devenyns injured again

Dries Devenyns of Silence-Lotto crashed in the Tour of Denmark and broke his left forearm - again. The second-year pro went down 30 kilometres into Thursday's second stage when a rider swerved in front of him. Devenyns was taken to a local hospital and was expected to fly home to Belgium on Friday, to be operated on.

The 25 year-old has lost a lot of time to crash-related injuries. He crashed in last year's Etoile des Bessèges and broke the same arm. When he started training again, a crash left him in a coma, and he was unable to ride at all for seven weeks.
