Albert may return in 2008

Niels Albert may return to racing this year, only six weeks after a crash while warming up put him in intensive care. The 22 year-old crashed on November 16, suffering a ruptured spleen. He
started riding on the road again only last week.

"Six weeks later, there are no more medical reservations," his manager Christophe Roodhooft told Albert will most likely ride the race in Loenohut on December 30, but the final decision won't be made "until he can train in the field".
