Volksbank's mixed bag at Giro d'Oro

Team Volksbank had mixed feelings after the Giro d'Oro on Sunday. Its three Swiss riders shone in the Italian race, as Florian Stalder was in a three-man escape group for over 70 km, Andreas Dietziker finished 11th, and Elias Schmäh won the sprint ranking. But the bad news was that allrounder Harald Morscher broke his collarbone in a crash on a descent after 100 km.

"The rider in front of me wanted to avoid a puddle and swerved left, so I had to brake," the 35-year-old said. "The front wheel slid directly away and I went shoulder first into a stony cliff." He is scheduled to undergo surgery Monday and wants to be back on his bike as quickly as possible.
