Police stop helmet-less Astana cyclist

Spanish police stopped an Astana rider Tuesday because he wasn't wearing a cycling helmet.
Chris Horner was riding alongside teammate Lance Armstrong at Astana's preseason training camp when a police cruiser pulled the pack of riders over.
The team was allowed to continue after a routine identification check on Horner, who continued without the helmet since professional cyclists are not obligated to wear one in Spain.
Seven-time Tour de France champion Armstrong begins his comeback from retirement with the weeklong team training camp, which opened Sunday.
