Guillaume Martin will delay the start of his season by a week and miss the Tour des Alpes Maritimes et du Var as he recovers from the effects of a crash in a training camp in Sierra Nevada in late January.

The Cofidis rider also revealed that his off-season had been affected by nagging knee pain, but he said that he would be ready for the Boucles Drôme Ardèche on the weekend of February 27-28.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
