Peña doubtful for Tour
Victor Hugo Peña's freak accident in the neutral zone of Sunday's Paris-Roubaix may keep him out of the Tour de France.
Peña cracked two vertebrae, and abandoned soon after the race start. He's expected to wear a back brace for a month or so.
“I am worried about my preparations for the Tour de France,” he said. “I will have to rest the injury for two weeks and then we will see how much time it will take me to fully recover.”
Now riding for Phonak, Peña was one of Lance Armstrong's most reliable mountain specialists over the last few years at US Postal.
