Boonen underwent surgery yesterday: an elbow infection keeps him off the bike for about a week.

bad news for him with Omloop only one month away.

It seems Colombia and Katusha won't be included in the Tour.
( or the ASO are planning to invite them for the Tour, so decided to give chances for other teams in the other races)

Indeed but a Giro/Vuelta double will be better for Colombia, in my opinion. Of course they have some great talents but, correct me if I'm wrong, they have only 2 riders with GT expericience.

their only problem os their roster is way too small. but they are going to get riders somewhere through the season if they are invited to the tour
