Michael Boogerd was taken to a hospital in Amsterdam Sunday with a bacterial infection in his left knee. The Rabobank rider crashed last Friday while training and hurt the knee. A drain was placed in it on Friday but has since been removed. He is now being treated with antibiotics.

According to the team's website, rabobank.nl, he still plans to ride the Giro de Lombardia this coming weekend as his last race. He announced in April that he would retire at the end of the season.
