Landbouwkrediet-Tönissteiner just barely survived the opening weekend of the Belgian season, reporting two injuries and two down with the flu, according to the team's website, landbouwkrediet-tonissteiner.be.

Saturday, Frédéric Amorison crashed during the Omloop Het Volk and had to go to the hospital with suspicion of a broken rib. However, he was lucky enough to come away only with bruising. Teammate Jan Kuyckx wasn't so lucky. A crash Saturday on the Kwaremont left him with a two centimetre long cut on the chin and a broken tooth. He is doubtful for the Record-Driedaagse van West-Vlaanderen this coming weekend.

Bert Scheirlinckx went home Saturday night with the flu, while Andy Cappelle is only starting to train again after sitting out a week with the same bug.
