Painful shoulder for Hincapie; broken collarbone for Steels

George Hincapie's Roubaix ended in disaster with 45 km to go when his aluminium steerer tube broke on the Mons-en-Pevele sector of cobbles. Hincapie had been riding well up until that point, but he couldn't avoid crashing. He fell heavily on his right shoulder and will likely require an operation, according to VRT.

Tom Steels (Davitamon-Lotto) had a spectacular crash after 127 km when he clipped the wheel of Steven de Jongh in front of him. Unfortunately for Steels, he broke his left collarbone.
