What's Cool In Road Cycling

Tyler Down! – Shoulder Broken In Stg 1 Crash –

Our sources inside the CSC team bus have reported that Tyler Hamilton has suffered a broken shoulder in a crash at the finish of today’s 1st stage of the Tour de France. We don’t know how bad it is yet, but it’s unlikely he’ll be able to continue – even if he’s proven that it takes more than a broken bone to keep him off the podium (Giro ’02- 2nd overall). We’ll keep you posted as news arrives.

The news is obviously terrible for Tyler, but also for his growing legions of fans who were looking to cheer him onto his first podium finish in a Tour de France as part of his best season ever.
