De Knegt, Franzoi bruised but not broken

Gerben De Knegt suffered a heavy crash in the Superprestige in Gieten on Sunday, and it was feared that he had broken his collarbone, but later tests showed no break, just bruised ribs. De Knegt crashed hard on the second to last lap when his front wheel broke on a descent.

De Knegt hopes to recover from the injuries in time to compete in the next round of the World Cup in Igorre, Spain, on December 2.
