GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — American cyclist George Hincapie's injuries will not require surgery, and he is expected to be ready for the Tour de France. Hincapie, a key teammate in Lance Armstrong's record run of seven straight Tour de France victories, is the leader of the Discovery Channel team. He sustained a separated shoulder and bruised wrist after a fall at the Paris-Roubaix race on Sunday. He lost control on a cobbled stretch of the race. "I will be off the bike for about a week, but look forward to resuming my training," Hincapie said.
