AP - Sports

MILAN (AP) -- Spanish Vuelta champion Chris Horner has been released from a hospital in northern Italy following a training accident inside a tunnel last week.

The 42-year-old American had a punctured lung drained and was also treated for four broken ribs, plus cuts and bruises, after Friday's accident.

Horner said in a statement from his Lampre team that ''I was lucky: the crash could have had worse consequences.''

He says ''I still feel pain when I move. I know I must be patient. I hope I can soon pedal on the rollers.''

Horner will now have to skip the Giro d'Italia but he still hopes to ride the Tour de France and Vuelta.

Horner won the Vuelta last year at the age of 41 to become the oldest Grand Tour champion.
