T-Mobile's Andreas Klier is recovering from his collision with a trailer attached to a tractor this week and hopes to salvage the Spring Classics season. The crash left him with a fractured right cheek bone and concussion.
Team spokesman Stefan Wagner told Cyclingnews Friday afternoon that the German rider "feels comparatively good, and the doctors are quite pleased with his current condition. He will start with a short training on Sunday and will test himself at the beginning next week. Afterwards he will decide if he will start at the Ronde van Vlaanderen, but he won't start at de Panne. "
