Milram happenings in Gent

By Susan Westemeyer

Team Milram had a busy day in Gent on Tuesday, with an unplanned trip to the dentist. Ralf Grabsch probably didn't enjoy his time in Belgium too much, after breaking a filling during the second stage. The rider was munching down on a power bar that had turned hard from the cool weather when the incident occurred. He made a quick visit to a Belgian dentist early Tuesday to have it taken care of, prior to the day's stage.

Christian Knees, on the other hand, enjoyed his Gent experience more. Knees' wife, Nathalie, was there Monday afternoon, along with the couple's daughter, Fenja, who was celebrating her one-week birthday.
