Fagnini abandons after crash
Domina Vacanze's Gian Mattea Fagnini of Italy abandoned the Tour de France this afternoon, after a fall in the back of the pack with about 22 miles to go. Race doctors were checking his collarbone, and reports are that it was broken.
Fagnini was a teammate of Mario Cipollini, and one of his lead-out men. We're down to 186 riders, with Nick Gates and Fagnini abandoning, and Euskaltel starting one rider short. Bradley McGee is soldiering on with his back pain, and is apparently safely ensconced in the field.
