Edita Pucinskaite (Equipe Nürnberger Versicherung) was injured in a freak accident at Saturday's Time Trial stage of the Thüringen Rundfahrt in Germany. The women's Giro d'Italia winner crashed off of the starting ramp, and had to be taken to a nearby hospital.

She suffered facial injuries, and required stitches. "Fortunately she didn't have any fractures," said team manger Jens Zemke. "Apart from some team cuts she is doing well under the circumstances."
