Levi Leipheimer’s condition has improved in the past week following his accident on April 1. Leipheimer was hit from behind by a car and suffered a fractured fibula. However, his condition is not yet at 100 percent, leaving his participation in AMGEN Tour of California in doubt.
“There’s still pain in my leg,” Leipheimer said. “There’s soreness when I try and apply a little more force or get out of the saddle. I can still train, but it is not easy. I’m not sure about my participation in Tour of California at this point.”
The team will continue to monitor Leipheimer’s condition in the next days, and will determine whether he is healthy enough to make the final selection.
