Burghardt pain-free

Team High Road's Marcus Burghardt raised a few eyebrows last week when he rode in Rund um den Henninger Turm only two and half weeks after he underwent knee surgery. "My comeback after my knee operation was successful and I am very satisfied," he said.

"It was a hard race for me, but I made it through to the end," Burghardt further noted. He is now doing basic training at his home in Switzerland before heading off to his next race, the Neuseenclassics-Rund um die Braunkohle on May 12.
