Breschel to refocus on Classics after surgery

Matti Breschel wins with Jakob Fuglsang second, Tour of Denmark 2010, stage 3

Dane Matti Breschel plans to recover in time from knee surgery to race the spring classics. The surgery on Tuesday in Denmark went better than Breschel feared and expected.

The doctors "were pleasantly surprised," Breschel told Denmark's DR newspaper. "They could see there was a lot of goop in there that should be removed, but he [the doctor] doubted that it would take me more than six weeks [to recover]. And, as I am athlete, I hope it heals a little faster and that I will soon be back again."
