Mauricio Ardila of Team Rabobank is the next to join the list of those whose season has ended. The Colombian is still suffering from back problems stemming from a crash in the Vuelta a España.

The 29 year-old was in the Netherlands for medical examinations the last few days, with Rabobank team medical staff checking his back.

Ardila had been scheduled to ride the Coppa Sabatini, Giro dell'Emilia, GP Beghelli and the Giro di Lombardia. Marc de Maar replaced him in the Coppa Sabatini, while the team will compete with only seven riders in Emilia and Beghelli. The decision of the final team line-up for Lombardia has not yet been made.
