Luxembourg’s Frank Schleck has pulled out of Wednesday’s Fleche-Wallonne race and is doubtful for Sunday’s Liege-Bastogne-Liege after his fall in the Amstel Gold Race, his Saxo Bank team revealed on Tuesday.
Schleck was taken to hospital after falling spectacularly during the Dutch race on Sunday but was discharged shortly afterward.
The 29-year-old had hoped to compete in all three Ardennes classics this season, but his team said the seriousness of his fall prompted them to take extra precautions.
