Andre Greipel Sidelined From The Spring Classics


PARIS, March 31, 2014 (AFP) – German rider Andre Greipel has been ruled out
of the remainder of the spring classics series with a collarbone injury, his
Lotto team confirmed on Monday.

Greipel, 31, picked up the injury after falling eight kilometres from the
finish line as he was challenging for Sunday’s Gent-Wevelgem classic in

“It’s a tough blow for Andre and for the team,” said Lotto manager Marc

“He was our ticket for several races. In the Tour of Flanders and the
Paris-Roubaix he could have done great support work for the team.”
The Gent-Wevelgem was the second in the eight-race spring classics series.
