Cyclo-cross rider Niels Albert can leave the intensive care unit of the university clinic in Gent, Belgium, this afternoon. The Belgian suffered a torn spleen when he crashed Sunday while warming up for the Superprestige race in Gavere.
"Then we will transfer him as soon as possible to a hospital nearer to his home," said his manager Christoph Roodhooft to sporza.be Monday morning.
Albert, 22, is expected to stay in hospital another four to five days. (SW)
