Schleicher crashes out in Sweden

Equipe Nürnberger Versicherung was happy with Charlotte Becker's third-place finish in Wednesday's World Cup race in Sweden, but the team paid a high price at the race, losing former world champion Regina Schleicher for the next few races after a serious crash.

The 34 year-old sprinter was taken to the hospital, where she stayed overnight, with a concussion and a cut over her right eye. Schleicher planned to return to her home in Italy as soon as possible, and will miss the team time trial on Friday as well as the Sparkassen Giro Bochum Sunday.

The Equipe will now send only five riders to Bochum: Charlotte Becker, Christine Becker, Eva Lutz, Larissa Kleinman and Suzanne de Goede.
