Frank Vandenbroucke of the Acqua & Sapone Caffè Mokambo team, underwent a successful operation today at the Clinica Poggio del Sole to correct a problem with his synovial plica of his left knee.

His doctor Ricci Gianni reported that he was satisfied with the outcome of the surgery. Vandenbroucke will begin physiotherapy on Friday and hopes to be riding again within ten days assuming no complications from the operation.

A relieved Vandenbroucke said, "I hope to build my endurance back up on a bike and be able to finally train without pain."
