Birthday boy Tuft shines in Giro's opening stage

Belfast (United Kingdom) (AFP) - Canadian Svein Tuft, riding for Australian team Orica-GreenEdge, enjoyed a birthday to remember as the Giro d'Italia got underway in Belfast on Friday. While Tuft was on a high, there was a disaster for home favourite Dan Martin. The Irishman, a stage winner in last year's Tour de France, crashed heavily when his wheel appeared to slide on a wet manhole cover, bringing down four of his Garmin-Sharp team-mates. His fall in Belfast saw him taken to hospital with a suspected broken collar-bone, ending his Giro just fifteen minutes after it started.
