Giro d'Italia: Update on Cipollini
Examinations and xrays have revealed no fractures for Mario Cipollini after his crash in the final corner of the stage today, but team doctor Dr. Nazareno Trobbiani has advised him to withdraw from the race.

Cipolllini was complaining of back pain after the accident that also involved Furlan, after a move by Galvez Lopez took Cipo's wheels out from under him, taking Cipo, Lopez and Furlan into advertising barriers on the rain-slicked road.

The decision as to whether Cipo will continue in the Giro will be made Thursday morning.
