Tom Boonen (Quick Step) will contest the Paris-Tours this weekend while a decision on Rabobank's Bram Tankink's participation will wait until Wednesday. Boonen had a fall at the weekend's Circuit Franco-Belge and the Belgian rider underwent x-rays at the Herentals Clinic on Monday, to examine the impact of the fall.

While cleared of any major injuries, Boonen will have his hand braced over the coming days as a precautionary measure. The rider will be training in Monaco this week ahead of Sunday's race.

Tankink has been cleared of a broken rib but is suffering from discomfort after his accident. "Tankink did not break a rib, he will try to make it to Paris-Tours, and we are going to decide together after Wednesday's training if that is feasible or not," Luuc Eisenga told Cyclingnews.com.
