Halgand breaks collarbone - again

Crédit Agricole's Patrice Halgand hasn't had a lucky 2006 season. The French rider was unfortunate in January when he broke his right collarbone while preparing for the Jacob's Creek Tour Down Under. Now, tuttobiciweb reported that the 32 year-old, who won a stage in the Tour de France in 2002, broke that same bone once again while training for a cyclo-cross race in his home Vendée region. Halgand underwent surgery for the first fracture, and it is not known whether he will have to be operated on a second time.
