Baumann: Cycling is easier than walking

Two and a half months after a nasty crash that broke both bones in his lower leg, T-Mobile's Eric Baumann is finally training on the road again. "I went out this week one time with my mountain bike to see if it works - and it works," he said. He is still receiving therapy on the injured leg, which is "still quite wobbly, but at least I can walk alone again," according to the German sprinter. Although he can walk, he notes that cycling is easier right now. He hopes to make his comeback soon. "I want to be available to the team as soon as possible, maybe even for the Sachsen-Tour in July."
