Leukemans still out for a while

Bjorn Leukemans of team Davitamon-Lotto will still have to wait five more weeks until he can come back to competition. The Belgian rider suffered a complicated fracture to his shoulder in the recent Tour of Belgium and is still not able to move his arm. After further examinations on Thursday, Leukemans was told that the fast comeback he had hoped for would not be possible.

"My doctor says I will have to wait at least five weeks until I can come back to competition," Leukemans said. "That is disappointing. I know it's going to be difficult, but one thing's for sure: that I will be back there!"
