Löwik operated, again

Gerben Löwik again underwent surgery last Wednesday. The Rabobank rider was operated on his saddle area, after already having problems in the beginning of this year, which made an operation necessary on February 12. It's the third operation for Löwik, as he needed surgical help also after the Tour de France last year. The team announced nevertheless that the current infection did not have the same causes as the one last year. Löwik will need ten days to recover, and will not be able to participate in the Niedersachsen-Rundfahrt from April 19-23 as had been the plan.
