Horner Leaves the Giro
It's gotta be tough for a rider and competitor like Chris Horner to leave the Giro d'Italia early, especially when he's going so well and helping his team so much--not to mention sitting in a pretty good position himself.
But injuries happen, and the one he suffered in yesterday's crash turns out worse than originally thought. He says, "The doctor believes I have a muscle strain, one that is bad enough that my leg is not able to support the weight of my body on or off the bike."
His final blog post is here. He'll be missed in this race, but let's hope he's back for the Tour in July.
