Chris Horner Breaks Wrist?

Taken to hospital.
Reported by LA, via Twitter, to have suffered a broken wrist.
Another problem for their prospective Giro team, if confirmed.

Horner is the man. Today's news is that nothing is broken but he is flying to the us for further tests.
Yates has said that after putting a monster effort in stage 3 at the Basque race, he was with the chasers, 1 min behind Contadoper, and was climbing like nothing was going on. The other chasers were in the red...
If he is ok and no fractures, I would expect a serious performance by Chris at the Giro...
Also, if you catch some of his comentary in velonewstv, he is quite the commentator as well. A lot better than that Andreu poser....
