A short report form the sick bay: Davitamon-Lotto's Peter Van Petegem had to quit the race during stage one of Tour of Denmark. The Belgian rider, according to the team, has a "badly placed" cyst, which will most probably have to be removed by surgery. In this case, 'De Peet' will be out for a couple of weeks.

Over in Germany, Lampre's Danilo Napolitano finished second in the first stage of Deutschland Tour, just a few centimetres behind Bazayev (Astana), but the Italian raced with a temperature. Over night, Napolitano's health conditions will be evaluated in order to understand if he can go on with the German ProTour race.
