Swiss cyclist's Olympic dream comes to premature end
09:41, August 07, 2008

Swiss time-trial world champion Fabian Cancellara will have to ride the cycling road race on his own in the 29th Olympic Games after his only teammate's Olympics came to a sudden end, Swiss media reported Wednesday.

Michael Albasini fell during training in Beijing on Tuesday and suffered multiple fractures of his left collarbone, according to the Swiss Olympic team.

Albasini, 27, was to be flown back to Switzerland for an operation. A replacement would not be named because there was not time for a rider to acclimatize before Saturday's race, the Swissinfo news website reported.

Cancellara is scheduled to compete in the road race on the first day of Olympic competition, but he is expected to be a bigger challenger in the individual time-trial.
