Gerolsteiner's Robert Förster didn't make it to the finish of Saturday's Oddset-Tour stage four, because he was "run down from behind at a speed of 60 km/h," he said. Victim of a bad crash, Förster injured his shoulder. "I can barely move my left arm," the sprinter explained. "I fell on the shoulder that I was operated on two years ago."
X-rays showed no fractures, but there is still the possibility of ligament damage. "The swelling and bruises have to let up, until then you can't see anything. But right now I'm just glad that nothing was broken," Förster said.
