More Gerolsteiner injuries

Only days after saying that Oliver Zaugg would have knee surgery the end of the season, Team Gerolsteiner has moved the date of his operation up to next week. Zaugg had to drop out of the Giro d'Italia due to problems with sitting on his saddle, but he also had pain in his left knee, caused by an inflamed bursa.

"I probably sat on my bike differently the last few stages," Zaugg, 26, said, causing an old injury to inflame the bursa. "The doctors say that the scar of the old injury are responsible for the bursitis, and advise me to have the operation."
