Vandenbroucke is back

Frank Vandenbroucke ( has made his long awaited return to racing, starting in today's Rund um den Henninger Turm in Germany. VDB had planned to come back in the Tour de Picardie in mid-May, but decided instead to start a couple of weeks earlier and keep the team management happy. He did not finish in Frankfurt, but neither did most of the peloton.

The race also marked a comeback to the winner's circle for Erik Zabel, with the T-Mobile man winning a 20 rider bunch sprint and taking his third victory in this event.
