Schulze out of the hospital

Andre Schulze of Team Wiesenhof-Felt is out of the hospital and hopes to be back training on his bike by the middle of the month, the team has announced. The sprinter crashed at 55 km/hour in the Ronde van het Groene Hart on March 25. He was subsequently operated on for a quadruple fracture of his cheekbone and a broken jaw.

"After the four-hour long surgery last Friday I was totally exhausted, but now I'm pain-free," he said. "It is of course doubly bitter for me. Not only is the injury painful, but it hurts even more that I won't be able to help my team in the highlights of the spring season."
