    Horner has broken leg

    Searched and did not see this posted here. When his leg was examined, Horner found out he had a broken bone. Darn! 100 miles with a broken leg - one tough hombre.

    Fortunately for him, he's not a horse!

    Tough Hombre, though...............

Since it has only been five and a half weeks since I broke it, it definitely hurt more than a little. I also hit my left knee when I went down. As I jumped back on my bike and tried to pedal my left knee wouldn't turn the pedals. It felt like a charlie horse that took at least five minutes to loosen up. Unfortunately, it left me pedaling with 70 percent of my right leg for the rest of the stage, which still had another 115 miles of hard racing to go.
