Peter van Petegem will not be riding the Amstel Gold Race this Sunday, according to his Davitamon-Lotto team. He crashed at the halfway point of Paris-Roubaix yesterday, and apart from suffering bruising and abrasions, he also strained his right adductor muscle heavily. He is currently being treated by the team doctor and an osteopath, but will be off the bike for several days, meaning that he will not be fit in time for the Amstel.

Davitamon-Lotto's injured list also includes Wim Vansevenant, who crashed during the Ronde van Vlaanderen a week ago. He is slowly recovering from his injuries, which included a broken elbow. Gert Steegmans has been suffering from bad bronchitis, and will have lung and sinus x-rays done in Mensana today, to determine whether he can resume training. Finally, Serge Baguet, who crashed during the Vuelta a Pais Vasco, has made a quick recovery and is already able to do endurance training. He should be back racing fairly soon.
