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,

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.
