    Australian cyclist Evans out for six weeks Australia's Cadel Evans of the Telekom team, who fell in
    the weekend's Amstel Gold World Cup race, will be out of action for up to six weeks, his German
    team said. Evans, from Katherine in the Northern Territory, is set to have an operation after
    breaking his left collar bone in two places. The revelation of last year's Tour of Italy, when he
    wore the leader's pink jersey, is expected to be back on rollers, which allow a cyclist to train
    while the bike is in a fixed position, in a couple of weeks. The 25-year-old Evans, who came to
    road cycling after winning a horde of mountain bike World Cup titles, is considered as a future
    contender for the Tour de France, the world's biggest race which was won by American Lance
    Armstrong for the fourth time in a row last July. He was also the 2002 Commonwealth Games
    time-trial champion in Manchester, England.

    WERELDBEKER WIELRENNEN Evans breekt sleutelbeen in Gold Race VALKENBURG (ANP) - De Australische
    wielrenner Cadel Evans heeft zondag bij een val in de Amstel Gold Race zijn sleutelbeen gebroken.
    Evans was betrokken bij een valpartij waarbij ook de Italiaan Balducci tegen het asfalt ging. Die
    hield er slechts schaafwonden aan over. Evans is één van de troeven van Telekom voor de Ronde van
    Frankrijk. Na zijn val nam hij nog enige tijd aan de wedstrijd deel alvorens af te stappen. In het
    ziekenhuis van Maastricht werd daarna een breuk geconstateerd. Zijn deelname aan de Tour komt niet
    in gevaar. Over een week hoopt de Australiër al weer te kunnen trainen. Evans, een voormalig
    mountainbiker, brak al twee keer eerder zijn sleutelbeen.

    Five to ten days, according to cyclingnews, and he can still ride rollers. It's the road he has
    to wait for.
