Waiting on the medical prognosis for Astana July 13, 2007

Posted by dperry1ma in Alexander Vinokourov, Andreas Kloden, Astana, Tour de France.

Lot’s of attention for Vinokourov’s plight today, but a small crash suffered by Andreas Kloden may be just as serious for Astana. The team reported than Kloden has a hairline fracture of his tailbone and they are assessing his ability to go.

And despite a heroic effort Vino fell short in Astana’s all-out bid to get him back into the lead group… at times it seemed as if he couldn’t keep up with the team of 6 Astana riders that came back to time trial him back into contention. Astana indicated that his injuries may include not just the serious cuts and scrapes he received in the fall, but broken bones.

A couple of hours and we’ll know whether the 2 co-leaders can keep going…
