Report: Irizar injured in training crash

Former Euskaltel stalwart Markel Irizar crashed heavily while training today, suffering multiple injuries to his face.

BiciCiclismo reports the RadioShack - Nissan Trek rider was taken to a medical center where he was treated for a broken jaw, a broken finger and various facial injuries. He also required several stitches to a wound above his right eye. Irizar will remain under observation at the hospital tonight, and is likely to miss the start (if not the whole thing) of his team's training camp in Calpe, Alicante, starting tomorrow.

A picture of the banged-up 31-year-old can be viewed here.
