Danilo Wyss will miss today's Belgian Classic Scheldeprijs due to a finger injury sustained in Sunday's Paris-Roubaix. The BMC rider expects to return for the Tour de Romandie, April 28 to May 3.

"The finger is very swollen, but fortunately nothing is broken and I can continue training," he said.

Wyss crashed on the first of 27 pavé sectors of the Paris-Roubaix: Troisvilles à Inchy. He hyper-extended a finger on his right hand. He continued racing until the pain forced him to abandon.

"I couldn't hold the handlebars properly and felt an insane amount of pain from the vibrations. My legs felt great, though, and that made me even more disappointed when I had to quit the race."

Wyss expects the finger to be pain-free in the coming days. His next goal will be the Tour de Romandie stage race, where he hopes to win some sprint stages and help his teammates on the mountain stages.

Brent Bookwalter, Antonio Cruz, Jackson Stewart, Martin Kohler, Jeff Louder, Ian McKissick and Marcus Zberg will lead the BMC team in the Scheldeprijs.
