Bert Roesems of Davitamon-Lotto has fractured his left collarbone in a crash while training on the "Kuipke" track. The 34 year-old Belgian immediately visited a doctor and was giving the diagnosis.
Due to the incident, Roesems, 8th in this year's Paris-Roubaix will not join the team when they depart tomorrow for their training camp. Instead, he will undergo surgery, performed by Doctor Claes.
The incident marks the eleventh big crash for the Davitamon-Lotto in 2006. For 2007 the team will change its name to Predictor-Lotto.
