Preliminary reports indicate that Gorka Verduga of Team Euskaltel-Euskadi suffered a broken rib in his crash during Sunday's Vattenfall Cyclassics in Hamburg. The team said that he would undergo more tests to determine the exact nature of the injury.

Verduga had been scheduled to ride the Eneco Tour, which starts Wednesday, so the team has had to juggle its roster. Aitor Galdos will not take his place, and join Mikel Astarloza, Unai Etxebarria, Rubén Pérez, Jorge Azanza, Beñat Albizuri, Joseba Zubeldia and Ivan Mayoz at the race.
