Mended Haymen to California

Rabobank's Mathew Hayman will fly to the US for the Tour of California in just two days. The Australian suffered a broken collarbone in stage four of the Tour Down Under last month. He underwent surgery with plates and screws installed to repair the broken bone and was back on his bike within a week of the crash. He has been training in Brisbane, his Queensland summer base.

Hayman was allegedly head butted by Elia Rigotto (Team Milram) just prior to his crash. Rigotto was disqualified by officials although both riders said afterward the action was unintentional.
