Mario Aerts, who broke his collarbone in training last week, may still be able to start in next week's Ardennes classics, according to doctor Toon Claes, who operated on him. Aerts had a plate inserted into his collarbone on Wednesday evening, and after taking two days off the bike, he is allowed to ride on a home trainer on Saturday. Although Aerts himself isn't sure of how he'll feel, he has in principle been given a green light to race.
