Health Net without two Kiwis

The Health Net Pro Cycling Team Presented by Maxxis will be without the services of its two New Zealanders in the near-term. Greg Henderson will be out for several weeks after suffering a fractured hip in a crash during the McLane Pacific Downtown Criterium. Initially, the injury was thought to be a deep contusion, but after several weeks without improvement, x-rays showed a femoral head fracture. Henderson is expected to make a full recovery, and will return to racing this season.

Hayden Roulston will be out indefinitely after contracting a viral illness shortly after his silver medal winning performance in the points race at the Commonwealth Games on March 17. Doctors are continuing to monitor his recovery in his native New Zealand.

For the Ford Tour de Georgia, Mike Sayers and Tim Johnson will replace Roulston and Henderson. For Europe, Garrett Peltonen and Jeff Louder will ride in their places.
