Quick Step crashes in Dwars door Vlaanderen

By Susan Westemeyer

Two Quick Step riders crashed in the Dwars door Vlaanderen on Wednesday. Gert Steegmans went down almost exactly halfway through the race and had to drop out.

"He has bruises on his thigh and back. He now has to wait and see how things develop for his participation in the coming races," Sport Director Wilfried Peeters told the belga press agency.

Former World Champion Tom Boonen also went down, when he went off the road on the Oude Kwaremont. He was able to continue though and finished 37th.
