Olympic Champion Samuel Sánchez of Euskaltel-Euskadi is recovering from his crash last week in France's Paris-Nice stage race.
Sánchez crashed in the second stage, but he did not notice any problems until stage seven. The pain in his left knee forced him to abandon the race after the seventh stage to La Montagne de Lure.
The Basque team said the 31-year-old suffers from a fracture and an inflamed tendon. The prognosis is good and Sánchez will be able to continue training tomorrow for his goal, the Vuelta al País Vasco, April 5 to 11. (MP)
