Andy and the tootache

Andy Schleck has decided to give the World Championships a miss after his recent wisdom tooth operation. The surgery was done eventually only after Andy had suffered from the infection for several weeks. I don’t really want to imagine where he had been putting his mouth after he was sucker-punched by Cadel at the Tour. Wisdom tooth removal is a routine operation in football and is done early in the career of an athlete to avoid any pain and suffering which could be caused by the wisdom tooth later. Given Andy is a top athlete he should have been more professional about the whole situation, guess he just forgot to change the gear before putting it in the inner ring.
