World Champion Oscar Freire (Rabobank) has been cleared by his team's medical staff to start training again. During a full examination by team doctor Jan-Paul van Mantgem Freire's recent injuries were found to be adequately recovered. Van Mantgem found "a superficial, small subcutaneous build up of fluid, but there is no sign of inflammation," according to a team statement.

Freire spent the Spring Classics suffering from an injury to his saddle area, but nevertheless won Brabantse Pijl. He will now start preparing for the Tour of Switzerland, which starts June 11.
