Dutch team Rabobank has announced that Gerben Löwik might not be able to participate in Paris-Roubaix this upcoming Sunday. Löwik crashed in the Ronde Van Vlaanderen and injured his knee. "I'm no doctor but I can't imagine Gerben to ride like that," said team manager Frans Maassen on Monday. Maassen also said that Oscar Freire will not align at Gent-Wevelgem on Wednesday. The Spanish World Champion has been down with a 'flu and, although it was initially thought for him to return to competition in view of the classics in later April (Liège -Bastogne-Liège, Flèche Wallonne), Rabobank reconsidered its plans.
