Gerhard Trampusch was supposed to lead his new team, Team Volksbank, in this week's Settimana Internazionale, but a little bug let him down. The team announced that he is suffering from Lyme disease, which is spread by tick bites.
The Austrian cannot expect to return to riding for at least three to four weeks, said team doctor Stefan Reuter. Trampusch described the problem: "Limb pains, and dizziness, symptoms like the flu. We hope to get it under control with antibiotics. Fortunately we got a quick diagnosis. But for the time being, I can't do anything strenuous."
