Daniele Bennati Sighting!

Over at CN. Short version: broken wrist last year, healed, then knee hurt, then he started riding, then he discovered an inflamed ligament and stopped again. He only restarted training in earnest a month ago. I wouldn't call this a curse of Hincapie or Backstedt proportions, but he continues to reap nothing but bad karma from his move to Liquigas from Lampre. He'll still be a factor in sprints this summer and I'd expect to see him at the Tour. But it's a shame he couldn't make Gent-Wevelgem, he's a future winner there.
