Sebastien Rosseler continues to have problems with his right knee, which may put an end to his spring season this year, his Quickstep team has said. The 26-year old is not only an important part of sprinter Tom Boonen's "train", but was also expected to play an important role in the spring classics.

Because of recurring pain in his right knee, the team doctor has sent the Belgian to a specialist for further examinations. "He told me that he trained an hour and a half pain free," team manager Wilfried Peeters told sportwereld."But in the meantime he has lost six weeks of training. Nobody can find the cause of his problems. If this drags on for another fourteen days, then we can cross off the whole spring for him."
