Rebellin to Amstel despite broken rib

Gerolsteiner's Davide Rebellin will go to the Amstel Gold Race this weekend handicapped by a broken rib. "On Monday this week I noticed pains in my chest and it was difficult to breathe," he said. "I went to my doctor and he diagnosed a broken rib." Rebellin received the injury when he crashed in stage 4 of the Tour of the Basque Country. He will start Amstel despite the injury.

"In the meantime I am feeling better. On Thursday I will do a long training ride and then have it checked out again. My form is good, so I absolutely want to start at Amstel when there is not medical reason not to."
