Wellens out for a week

Bart Wellens has been told by his doctors to take a week of bed rest following his crash in the world cup cyclo-cross race in Pijnacker on Sunday. Wellens crashed while trying to chase back through the field to the leaders after he got off to a poor start, and landed on his head. He suffered a mild concussion from the fall, and nearly lost consciousness, but after a few minutes, Wellens got back on his bike and finished the race in 11th place.

While his head is currently causing him quite a bit of pain, Wellens hopes to recover quickly enough to race in this weekend's GvA Trophee' and Superprestige races in Belgium.
