Boogerd out with broken foot

Pro cyclists can injure themselves in many ways: riding into a pothole, crashing with another rider, playing with their kids... What?

Yes, Rabobank's Michael Boogerd took advantage of an afternoon off to play with his son Mikai and ended up breaking a bone in his right foot. He now has a cast up to the knee, and will have the foot further examined today (Friday) at the hospital in Amersfoort, Netherlands. It is not yet known how long he will be off the bike.
