Ballan returns in Tirreno

Alessandro Ballan (Lampre-Fondital) was involved in a crash last Saturday in southern Switzerland. During the GP Chiasso the 27 year-old rider from Veneto crashed and, subsequently, has had to take time off the bike. There were no fractures, but he is still experiencing pain in his legs and backside while trying to pedal.

Ballan will be forced to skip the Milano-Torino this Saturday, where he finished fourth in the 2006 edition, and hopes to return strong in the Tirreno-Adriatico, March 14-20.
