Colombia's Tour de France 'King of the Mountains' Mauricio Soler will start the second stage here on Sunday despite injuring his wrist in a crash on the first stage.

Soler, who rides for the British-registered Barloworld team, picked up a suspected fractured scaphoid (bone) in his left wrist and a sprained right wrist in a crash on the chaotic 197.5km first stage.

"He's going to give it a go," said Barloworld team manager Claudio Corti

"He'll see how he feels during the race." The second stage is a 164.5km run from Auray to Saint-Brieuc.
