Zabriskie not seriously injured

CSC's Dave Zabriskie was not seriously injured in the disastrous stage 4 crash that robbed him and his team of the yellow jersey. CSC team media officer Brian Nygaard said that Zabriskie had been cleared of any serious injury after the fall and would continue in the race.

"We have just got the results of the X-rays and nothing is broken," he said. "He's still got some pain in his right knee which we'll look at tomorrow (Wednesday) but he will start the stage."

"I'm really disappointed because it was looking good. We were very very close to winning the stage and keeping the yellow jersey," Zabriskie said. "I am not happy with what happened but that's life."
