Schmitz in hospital

T-Mobile's Bram Schmitz was taken to hospital in the Netherlands on Friday, June 16, where he is currently still kept under observation. The Dutch pro rider suffered severe diarrhoea, and will therefore not be able to start at his national championships this week-end.

"We found that Bram lost a lot of weight," said a T-Mobile spokesperson. "He couldn't keep anything in his body. That's why he was admitted to hospital. The precise reason for this is not yet known, not when he will be released."
