Boogerd to return in Pais Vasco

Rabobank's Michael Boogerd will make his comeback from injury in the Vuelta Ciclista al Pais Vasco (April 3-7). The broken bone in his foot has healed enough for him to begin racing again. "I have spoken with Erik Breukink (Rabobank's team manager) this morning. At the moment nothing stands in the way of participating in the Basque Country," said Boogerd. It was feared that the experienced Dutchman would have to miss the entire classics season, but after resuming training it seems all is not lost. "Yesterday I rode for six hours in Limburg... it's going well," he said.
