Voigt crashes out in Mallorca

Team CSC's Jens Voigt and Andy Schleck crashed during Wednesday's Trofeo Soller, part of the Challenge Illes Balears, which was won by Paolo Bettini. Voigt had to abandon the race and will not start in tomorrow's Trofeo Calvia.

"I lost quite a bit of skin on the left side of my body and sustained some deep cuts in my hand and around my knee, but it wasn't any worse than the doctors were able to stitch it all back together," commented Voigt, who will use the coming days to do some training instead of racing. "Luckily I didn't hurt my shoulder but I'm now at the point where the only thing on my body which isn't hurting is my bad shoulder."
