Howard's Giro over after sustaining broken collarbone in crash

It was another nervous and crash-marred day at the Giro d'Italia with Orica GreenEdge involved in a number of incidents which occurred in the final hour of Stage 6 from Mola di Bari to Margherita di Savoia. Leigh Howard was the worst-off from the Australian team after crashing shortly after the bunch hit the first of the two 16km finishing circuits. Howard went over bars, landed on his left shoulder but managed to finish the stage in 169th position, 37-seconds behind stage winner Marck Cavendish (Omega Pharma - Quick-Step).
