Samu update: no fracture

Samuel Sánchez did not fracture any bones in today's Dauphiné stage one.

Just a few minutes ago, the team wrote on its website that fractures were discarded after check-ups at a local hospital. He did take a "very painful" hit to his ribs though, and will decide on his further participation tomorrow morning.

Here's the official communiqué.

Latest: According to team DS Gorka Gerrikagoitia's Twitter-account, Samu will line up later today (Tuesday).

Check out the video below to see just what kind of pain the Euskaltel team leader was in upon crossing the line:

Yes... So you see can live a whole year to one race and suddenly... this also can happen the first day of TDF... I think it would be very wise if he doesn't start tomorrow and recover for TDF.
