Short training camp for Niermann

Grischa Niermann of Team Rabobank flew off to Denia, Spain, to train for a week with Jan Boven, Bram De Groot, Rick Flens, and trainer Louis Delahaye and get in the first preparations for the Tour Down Under. But after only three days he was back home in Germany again, laid low by a fever and infected tonsils.

"It wasn't really worth it to fly to Spain for only two training rides," he noted on his website, "But of course it wasn't planned that way. Now I have to take antibiotics and hope to be fit again by Christmas."
