Good news for Evans

Cadel Evans' crash on Friday while training in the Pyrenees will not put his Tour de France in danger, his team Davitamon-Lotto confirmed today. Cyclingnews' John Trevorrow spoke to Cadel's team director and mentor Allan Peiper at the Giro d'Italia, where he updated us on the situation.

"He crashed going down the Aubisque with Mario Aerts, behind the team car. There was some gravel on the road and he hit it, slipped, and did his knees, hip and shoulder. He's got a hairline crack in his collarbone, but it's not broken. They didn't have to open him up, he had the scan last night at the hospital in Belgium.
