Compound fracture for Tom Steels

Tom Steels' spectacular crash in Paris-Roubaix did not result in a broken collarbone, according to the latest update from Davitamon-Lotto. An additional medical examination has shown that Steels has a rare compound fracture above the articulation of the shoulder blade, requiring both an operation and plaster.

This operation will be performed next Thursday at Antwerp's hospital by Dr De Clerck. Steels won't return to the peloton until the end of June.
