Boom: Just a Bruise

I know this was mentioned in the live thread, but Lars Boom, who ended yesterday's Nys-fest Cross race in the hospital, is fundamentally OK. He has a large bruise affecting either his hip or back or both. Telegraaf says lower back, and that he'll be off the bike for a few days. The good news, for you VDS scouts, is that his road preparations shouldn't be interrupted, assuming it clears up in a short time. The bad news, for you CX fans, is that this puts his plans to defend his national championship next weekend in serious jeopardy. Maybe he'll have to settle for the Dutch road title in June instead. [And gripe about it, a/k/a pulling a Sminer.]
