Tom Boonen was back on his bike training again Monday morning, less than 24 hours after his crash in the Vattenfall Cyclassics but the ride didn't go well. "He has pains in his elbow, knee, shoulder, chest, back, just everywhere!" his mother Agnes told Sportwereld.be.

He visited a specialist in the evening who diagnosed a muscle clamped between his ribs. "That will be treated this week," team manager Wilfried Peeters said. Boonen had planned to inspect the World's course in Stuttgart today. "Maybe that will be done later this week," Peeters said, "but the crash disrupted our plans a bit."

Boonen is expected to start racing again in the Vuelta a España, starting September 1.
