Haselbacher ends season

Astana's Rene Haselbacher has dropped out of the Jayco Herald Sun Tour in Australia during the second stage. He caught a nasty cold on Saturday, which he was unable to overcome. "The antibiotics that I have to take for it have killed me," he noted. "I couldn't do anything more, so that is the end of my season."

The Austrian had lost 12 minutes in the first stage, and was in 51st place overall at the time of withdrawal.
