Bert Grabsch out of World's

30 year-old German Bert Grabsch (Phonak) has been forced to end his season sooner than expected, and will miss the World Championships next week. A closer examination has shown that Grabsch suffered a broken right collarbone during a fall in the first stage of the Tour of Poland. "With an injury like this, the season's over. That means I won't be able to compete in the World Championships nor in the Championship of Zurich," said Bert Grabsch, who is racing in his fifth season for Phonak.
