Michael Rasmussen of team Rabobank is back on his feet and walking without crutches for the first time since breaking his hip in a crash in the Giro dell'Emilia, October 7. The Danish climber received the good news from surgeon Luc de Vries during an exam at the Meander Medical Center in Amersfoort, according to Rabobank's website. Rasmussen is expected to be able to ride again at the start of the coming season, but the surgeon warned him, "you just can't crash and fall again!"

"I am doing great and I don't face any difficulties except sometimes I feel a stinging pain on the inside of my leg as I turn over in bed," Rasmussen said. "Well, this is the time of the year I always take things easy, and therefore I have plenty of time to recover."
