De Waele OK; Sijmens still hurt

Landbouwkrediet-Colnago rider Bert de Waele has been given the green light to train and race again after suffering knee problems during the team's recent training camp in Tuscany. De Waele was examined back in Belgium by Dr Michael Dick, who gave him the all-clear. He will make his season debut at the Trofeo Laigueglia on February 14.

Another Landbouwkrediet rider suffering from knee problems, Nico Sijmens, will have to wait a little longer before he gets back into racing. Sijmens has an inflammation that is being treated at the moment, but is not preventing him from training. In principle, he will be back for Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne on February 26, reports his team.

Landbouwkrediet-Colnago for Laigueglia: Bert De Waele, Frederic Amorison, Steve Cummings, Paul Manning, Jurgen Van Loocke, Sjef De Wilde, Kevin Neyrinck, Mathieu Criquielion
