T-Mobile's Bram Schmitz is in a German hospital after breaking his ankle last Saturday, and has been ordered by doctors to rest for four weeks.

Schmitz injured himself in Wenen on Saturday where he had just finished - and survived! - the week-long T-Mobile 'bonding camp'. But at a subsequent team meeting, the Dutch rider fractured his left ankle in three places, and underwent surgery in Murnau the following day where he had an iron plate inserted in the joint. He'll stay in hospital until the end of this week.
