Hoffman remains in hospital

Dutchman Tristan Hoffman (CSC) is still in Gent's UZ hospital after breaking his left shin bone in two places and suffering concussion from a crash in last Saturday's Omloop Het Volk. Hoffman told ANP on Thursday that he had to undergo a few more tests, particularly because there was a danger of infection due to the fact that it was an open break. However, if he is given the all clear, he will be able to leave today (Friday).
