Broken bones for Rabobank

Team Rabobank paid a high price for no results in Saturday's E3 Prijs Vlaanderen. Gerben Löwik fell very early in the race and broke his arm. Not much later Marc de Maar went down, and joined his team-mate in the hospital with a broken elbow. Team leader Erik Dekker called it "a heavy loss. Not just for this race, but they were both set for the Driedaagse van De Panne, the Ronde van Vlaanderen, Paris-Roubaix and even the Giro. Now we'll have to think about what to do."
