LONDON, July 28 (Reuters) - Swiss Fabian Cancellara hit the
deck with about 15 kilometres left in the Olympic road race,
ruining his chances of claiming a medal on Saturday and putting
the defence of his time trial title in possible jeopardy.
Cancellara, who was in a leading group of 32, missed a
right-hand turn and crashed into the safety barriers.
He managed to get back on his bike but struggled to hold his
handlebar with his right hand.
He is scheduled to defend his title in the Olympic time
trial on Wednesday, injury permitting.
