Gerolsteiner's Sven Krauss will still be hobbling around crutches for another week or so, but he will be on his bike again sooner than that. He broke his foot the end of last month and had it operated on the next day.
The first post-operative examination showed that everything is coming along well, he reported on his website, www.sven-krauss.com, and he can start training again this coming weekend. Before then, he will meet with an orthopaedist who will help him with a splint that will allow him to wear a racing shoe without undue pressure on the break.
