Schleck crashes in Poland

The Tour of Poland has had its share of crashes, and Friday's stage 6 was no exception. Fränk Schleck of Team CSC was involved in a bad crash during the 181-kilometer from Dzierzoniow to Jelenia Gora.

"It was a pretty serious crash, which Fränk was involved in so he's badly bruised on one side of his body, but he made it through the stage and we're hoping he'll be ok for tomorrow," said Team CSC's sports director Alain Gallopin on team-csc.com. "The doctors think he's okay, but of course the pain might take some of his energy for the final stage."

Stage 6 was won by Italian Filippo Pozzato (Liquigas).
