The Team Sky rider damaged his knee on 6th February in the Mallorca Challenge, and posted a statement on his website confirming that he won’t ride in the Classics campaign.

“I have had a bit of a rough time of it of late, the knee injury that I picked up from my crash is still hanging around.”

“I think we are on the home straight now but it has been quite a challenging time.”

“It is looking like my classics season is over, frustrating but I need to be positive.”
