Contador and Osa recovering

Liberty Seguros riders Alberto Contador and Unai Osa are recovering from some recent surgical operations, the team reports. Contador was operated on last Saturday for a groin hernia in Madrid's Hospital Ramon y Cajal. Doctors thought that surgery was the most rapid way of healing an injury without major disruption, and he will only be off the bike for 15 days.

Unai Osa, who is new to the team, had an arthroscopy in his right knee last Monday. He had been having difficulties with it while training, and during surgery, doctors removed an internal scar. It's expected that he will resume training soon.
