Former Paris-Roubaix winner Johan Vansummeren will race tomorrow for the Garmin-Sharp cycling team, one week after a frightening crash during the Tour of Flanders last weekend.


Vansummeren collided with spectators in a center median on the roadway, in which an elderly lady was transported to the hospital and placed in an intensive care unit.


Here is video of the high-speed crash:





Following the crash, Vansummeren said this to the local media: "I am in shock. I have a black eye and a few stitches, but that's not important now. I feel bad for the people involved. I have no desire to go further into (details) of the crash. IT would only get bogged down on who is to blame."
