Belgian champion Serge Baguet (Davitmaon-Lotto) has injured himself by falling down a stone stair at home on Saturday. Baguet told Sportwereld.be that he needed "30 stitches" to treat a wound in his left shin. "It was an unbelievably stupid accident that will cost me the start in the Dokter Tistaertprijs in Zottegem and the Druivenkoers in Overijse."
Baguet does hope to be back in time for the GP Ouest France in Plouay this weekend. "In principle, I can resume training in a couple of days," he said.
