Team Volksbank's Olaf Pollack and Andre Korff had a narrow escape on Monday when they were hit by a car while training in Badenweiler, Germany, near Freiburg. Despite both bikes being completely wrecked, neither rider was injured in the accident.

"We came away with only a scare – it could have been a lot worse," Pollack told DPA. "But both bikes are totally destroyed."

The two German sprinters for the Austrian Professional team are training for the Österreich Rundfahrt. Pollack will also ride on the track in this August's Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
