Bak not seriously hurt

Following Lars Bak's withdrawal from the third stage of Tirreno-Adriatico, Team CSC doctor Joost De Maeseneer confirmed their young Danish rider is not too badly off: "Even though it was quite painful for Lars, he got away with cuts and bruises," he said.

"You can't blame us for being lucky at the moment, even though we have to be glad Lars didn't get seriously injured, because it was a really bad crash," added directeur sportif Tristan Hoffman. "Everything is open in this race, and I think Rabobank will try to keep the peloton together during tomorrow's long stage. After Sunday's time trial we will see a completely different top GC."
