No Swiss for men's Worlds time trial

Cancellara's surgery leaves hole in team

The early end to the season of Fabian Cancellara and an injury to his time trial replacement, Martin Elmiger in the Vattenfall Cyclassics means Switzerland will head to Limburg with no rider for the elite men's time trial at the UCI road world championships.

Cancellara decided to quit for the year and have hardware removed from the collarbone he fractured in the Tour of Flanders.

The Swiss will still have six men for the elite men's road race, with BMC's Mathias Frank, Steve Morabito and Michael Schär making up half the team, and Michael Albasini (Orica-GreenEdge) and RadioShack-Nissan riders Oliver Zaugg and Gregory Rast completing the team.
