Rabobank's Sebastian Langeveld will miss this weekend's Amstel Gold Race, with the rider not fully recovered from last weekend's Paris-Roubaix. Langeveld sustained some injuries to his leg after a crash during the French Spring Classic.

"The wound on my knee is very deep," he told telesport.nl. "I have to take antibiotics and that costs energy. Personally, I still hope to start in the Gold Race, but the doctors of the team Wednesday let me know that I have to take [that idea] out of my head."

The injury is a blow to Langeveld, who has been riding solidly in recent weeks at the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix.
