"You can't keep a good man down," according do the old saying, and Erik Zabel must be a very good man. Only three days after his nasty spill in the Ronde van Vlaanderen, the Milram sprinter was back on his bike training again, reported the sid sports news agency.

Zabel had to cancel his appearances in Gent-Wevelgem and Paris-Roubaix due to multiple bruises and scrapes caused by his collision on Sunday. He meanwhile hopes to return to racing next week at the Scheldeprijs Vlaanderen, as preparation for the Amstel Gold Race a few days later.
