Freire withdraws from "Tour de France" for a broken rib

Katusha Team is forced to announce the first withdrawal of one of its riders from "Tour de France 2012": it's Oscar Freire, which suffered for a bad crash in the early part of the route of today's stage, the sixth. In the fall, the three times World Champion broke the third rib in his right chest, and the fracture opened a wound in his pleura. Freire will have to stay at the hospital under observation for three days at least, then the doctors will decide when he will be able to come back home. All Katusha's staff and riders wish Freire good luck for a quick healing.
