Fabio Sabatini (Team Milram) won't lineup at the start of today's 16th Giro d'Italia stage in Agordo after the Italian withdrew from the event due to injury. The 22 year-old has failed to overcome an injury from a fall on the event's fourth stage.

"Really, I am displeased at not being able to finish my first Giro d'Italia for those of the Milram team," said Sabatini in a team release.

The Tuscan rider will spend 15 days recovering after suffering a micro-fracture in the fall.

"I held out until I was able because I thought 'it's a muscular problem', but the pain has intensified itself," he added. "Now I hope to recover quickly. I want to do a good finish to the season"
