Fracture for Vanspeybrouck, scrapes for Breschel in Eneco Tour crash

After a successful Tour of Denmark in which he won two stages and helped his teammate to the overall victory, the Eneco Tour turned unlucky for Tinkoff-Saxo's Matti Breschel. The Dane was taken down when Pieter Vanspeybrouck (Topsport Vlaanderen-Baloise) was nudged toward the edge of a narrowing roadside and clipped the first set of barriers. The Belgian broke his finger in the crash, but Breschel will likely continue, suffering mainly road rash and bruises.
