Austrian champ Schairer in hospital after accident

World champion snowboarder Max Schairer of Austria has been transported to the hospital to test for a concussion after a nasty wipeout in the Winter X Games snowboardcross semifinals.
Schairer, the 2009 champion who is scheduled to compete at the Vancouver Olympics next month, got tangled up in a wreck involving three of the six riders on Saturday in a race over a tight course filled with turns and jumps.
X Games medical staff say Schairer had feeling in all of his extremities, was breathing normally but was stabilized and taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure.
