Team CSC's Nicki Sørensen will miss a big month of racing in September after breaking three bones in his foot. While the Danish rider's injuries won't require surgery, his foot will be in a cast for at least five weeks and he isn't expected to return to riding until season's end.

"He's really upset, because he' been looking forward to doing Tour of Ireland, Vuelta a España and of course the World Championships," said a disappointed sports director Kim Andersen. "He's been training towards these races for ages now and I think he's proven that he's on top form in Sachsen Tour and Tour of Denmark - better than ever actually. So it was a tough blow. His performance in Tour of Denmark was impressive and I believe he would've been even stronger for the Vuelta."

No details were released by the Danish ProTour squad on how Sørensen sustained the injuries, describing the event as an "unfortunate accident".
