Is Michael Barry the new Tyler Hamilton when it comes to crashing? I was reading the RVV report this morning, and he crashed and was taken to the hospital, poor guy. But it does seem like he has a hard time keeping it upright in races. Maybe Dede can teach him some bike handling skills.

Hammond went down hard on his knee also. I hope he'll be ok for PR.

I appreciate the info., thanks. I hope it's not a compound fracture but even if it's not that sure sucks for Hammond.

Probably not a compound fracture, but he'll have been lucky not have split his patella. It was on the road between Oudenaard and Kluisbergen, looked like a strong cross wind was pushing everyone into the gutter - that section of road has cobbles along the verge and looks like Roger landed on them knee first - you could hear his cries of pain on the TV coverage.

Michael (and Dede) could probably use a little support right now. Latest from Michael's website:
4.02.06: Michael sustained 3 broken vertebrae and a concusion in a crash at the Tour of Flanders. More information when available.
Take a minute to wish the guy well:
