Pau - Denmark's Jakob Fuglsang will carry on riding the Tour
de France despite suffering two small fractures in his left wrist in a fall on
Wednesday's 11th stage, his Astana team confirmed.
Fuglsang's team confirmed that tests after the stage into
Pau showed he had "two very small fractures, one to the scaphoid bone and
the other at the top of the radius bone."
He fell just past the halfway point in the 203.5km ride from
Eymet in a crash which forced his Italian team-mate Dario Cataldo to abandon.
"Jakob will start the next stage," added the
Kazakh team, whose leading rider Fabio Aru is second in the overall standings,
18 seconds behind yellow jersey wearer Chris Froome.
The 32-year-old Fuglsang, winner of last month's Criterium
du Dauphine, is fifth overall.
Thursday's 12th stage is a 214.5km ride from Pau to
Peyragudes in the Pyrenees.
