Voeckler’s ideal line, Stortoni chased by police
Lampre’s Matthew Lloyd has been forced to drop out of the Tour de France with a fracture to his elbow, Lampre announced today. The Australian crashed on stage 8 to Porrentruy, but soldiered on through to the end of the stage and in the time trial before submitting to x-rays.
The team doctor found a fracture to his radius near the elbow, which will need to be immobilized for 8 days.
“I’m really sad to quit the Tour de France after a bad first part and just before the stages that could suit me better. I would have given my support to the team and to Michele [Scarponi]. This morning I had pain in the elbow, so I’m not surprised it’s broken. I’ll wait to recover and I’ll try to be ready for Vuelta a Espana,” Lloyd said.
Cancellara to abandon?
Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad seems to have inside information regarding RadioShack’s Fabian Cancellara, and alleges that the Swiss powerhouse could leave the Tour early. While it is public knowledge that Cancellara’s wife is pregnant with the couple’s second child, the exact due date has never been revealed. “Sometime in summer,” Cancellara was always quoted as saying.
Now, the paper’s website wrote that the baby was expected just after the Tour de France, but that the delivery could reportedly be even before that. “It’s happening very quickly and the baby could be coming sooner than expected,” an inside source was quoted.
“If it is so, then I will take a helicopter to the hospital to be with my wife when she delivers,” commented Cancellara, who would thus be abandoning the race. “I still have two important goals this year: an Olympic medal and the birth of my second child.” (HK)
