Michael Boogerd had surgery this week in Antwerp, Belgium, on an arm injury he suffered in a skiing accident. The injury will likely put an end to his plans to run in the Rotterdam Marathon in April. The Belga news agency reported that the former Rabobank rider, who retired at the end of the 2007 season, may still try to run the CPD-Loop, a half-marathon in Den Haag, next month. His wife, Nerena, said, "He is in good shape. He might be able to do that, but a full marathon would be difficult."
