Lampre-NGC Suffered in the 3rd stage of the Tour de France

Crashes and wind characterized  the 3rd stage of the Tour de France (Marseille-La Grande Motte, 196,5 km) for Lampre-NGC.

Bruseghin was again involved in an accident: at 40 km to go, Marzio hit the ground with Spilak, but while the Slovenian rider didn’t suffered any injuries, the Italian athlete had bruised knee and elbow. After the end of the race, doctor Beltemacchi took care of this wounds and tomorrow he’ll evaluate the rider’s condition.

The other elements that influenced the race was the wind, that broke the pack into two parts: Lampre-NGC who were all supporting Bruseghin, couldn’t be in the head part and so they reached the arrival with a gap of 41" to the winner Cavendish.

"When the bunch split, our riders were helping Bruseghin and Furlan too could not join the 27 cyclists in the head of the race – Fabrizio Bontempi, Lampre-NGC’s sport director – For what concerns tomorrow time trial, we’ll have to evaluate Bruseghin’s condition and to try to set a pace that could be good for him".

The race was won by Cavendish (the second group at 41", Furlan 65th); Cancellara is still yellow jersey (Ballan 29th at 1’51", Bruseghin 72nd at 2’18").
