Caisse d’Epargne rider José Joaquín Rojas will not likely return to racing as early as next week's Critérium International as hoped. Full evaluate after he was hit by a car after a training ride with teammates Alejandro Valverde, Francesco Pérez and Luis León Sánchez in Alcantarilla (Murcia, Spain) earlier this month.

According to team doctor Jesus Hoyos, Rojas is suffering from a fracture of the 3rd and the 4th vertebrae in his spine. The rider will have to wear a special belt and can start training again within two weeks.
