Wouldn’t it be considered a cracked bone? There is too much English in today’s world!

Bennati’s season finished
Italian Daniele Bennati put a premature end to his 2007 season due to a micro-fracture in his right wrist, his Lampre-Fondital team has announced.

Doctors said the injury was probably caused in a crash early in the Vuelta a España and said he should immobilize his fingers for at least 20 days to give the bones time to heal.

Bennati, 27, was one of the top favorites for Sunday’s Paris-Tours, where he finished second in 2005. The Tuscan is coming off his most successful season, winning two stages at the Tour de France and three stages at the Vuelta a España, including the final stage in both grand tours.
