Gallopin breaks hand, ruled out for season

Tony Gallopin will miss the rest of the season after breaking his hand in the World Championship road race.

The Radioshack-Nissan rider was involved in a crash involving 30 riders four laps from the end of the race in Valkenburg.

The Frenchman will be unable to start the Tour of Piemonte, Paris-Bourges and Paris-Tours.

The 24-year-old joined the team this season from Cofidis and was third on stage 8 of the Tour de France.
