Erik Zabel will have to miss Gent-Wevelgem and Paris-Roubaix because of injuries suffered in the Ronde van Vlaanderen, the team announced Monday. Team Manager Gianluigi Stanga said that he had to take Zabel out of the line-up for those two upcoming races. "He needs a few days to recover and to let his wounds heal," Stanga said.

Zabel was involved in a crash during the Ronde, and suffered not only superficial wounds on his arm and leg, but also a serious bruise on his hip.
