Soler to continue on day-by-day basis

Mauricio Soler (Barloworld) will continue to contest the Giro d'Italia despite reports in the Colombian's homeland that he would withdraw from the event. Soler, like Spain's Alberto Contador, underwent examinations on yesterday's rest day to check on injuries sustained during the Grand Tour's early stages.

Soler crashed on the Tour's opening stage to Sicily and underwent an x-ray at the time which cleared him of any damage. The 2007 Tour de France King of the Mountains winner experienced pain all week, and another x-ray yesterday revealed he does have a micro-fracture in his wrist.
