CSC's injuries not serious

Team CSC's Marcus Ljungqvist and Stuart O'Grady were not as seriously injured in a Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne crash as was originally reported, the team has said. Ljungqvist was not unconscious nor did he suffer a concussion. "If that had been the case he would never have been able to go on afterwards, which he did," said CSC team doctor Piet De Moor, adding, "Marcus is fine. He's had some stomach problems over the weekend, but that's all."

"Stuart hurt his knee in the crash, but as far as we could tell afterwards it was only superficial," the doctor continued on the team's website, "That can be very painful as well though, which is the reason he chose not to go on after the feed zone. I haven't heard anything from Stuart since then, so I presume the diagnosis was correct."
