A major crash in Flèche Wallonne left Rolf Aldag (T-Mobile) and Michele Gobbi (Domina Vacanze) with broken bones, putting both riders out of action for the next several weeks. Gobbi sustained a broken thighbone and was treated yesterday evening at Huy hospital, while Aldag has a broken radius and various cuts and bruises.

The crash occurred on a narrow, slippery uphill section of the course and involved about ten riders including Francisco Mancebo (Iles Baléares), Thomas Dekker (Rabobank), Aldag's team-mate Oscar Sevilla and Benoît Poilvet (Crédit Agricole).
