Voigt injured

Team CSC's Jens Voigt took a tumble on Sunday while warming up for a cross country race in his hometown of Dassow, tearing three ligaments in his right shoulder. Further examination in a Berlin hospital will decide whether the 34 year-old needs surgery to heal the wound. "I wanted to jump over a tree trunk, but I wasn't fast enough," he said. "It's too bad, but not tragic neither - it's not that I lost a leg or anything," Voigt added, speaking to The preparation for the coming season will not be disturbed by the accident, he said.
