Savoldelli breaks collarbone

Italian Paolo Savoldelli has crashed during a training ride on Sunday 16 and fractured his collarbone. The Giro d'Italia winner of 2002 changed from T-Mobile to Discovery Channel for this season, but stayed unlucky: the injury is a setback to his preparations for the season, and will mean a month break. Savoldelli has been unlucky in the past with accidents and illnesses preventing him from riding the Tour de France during the last two years.
