Christ... really looking bad. Not only physically but also mentally. Hoogerland was already a lot more afraid on the bike after the Tour incident. If he makes it back from this he's going to be the new Moncoutie...

Update on Hoogerland

Quote:
He has five rib fractures, a bruised liver, some bleeding in the area surrounding it and some fractures to bones in his spine.

As a result he will remain in intensive care for several more days, and will have to delay his return to the Netherlands until next week. Vacansoleil DCM has said that he will be out for the entire spring season. It is as yet unspecified if he will be able to return in time for the Tour de France.

No tear in liver for Johnny "just" a bruised liver.

Kroon crashed in Qatar today, was brought to hospital. This could be the moment Gerdemann has waited for...
