Gerolsteiner sprinter Robert Förster is not as seriously injured as first thought. He crashed Saturday in the Oddset Rundfahrt, landing on his right shoulder, which was operated on two years ago. Nothing is broken and the ligaments are also not damaged, he now reports, and he is again training for his third Giro d'Italia participation. "We'll have to see how the healing process goes the next few days, but at any rate it looks good for 'Frösi'," says team spokesman Mathias Wieland.
