Klostergård injured

It was just the Quick.Step-Innergetic which suffered bad luck Saturday. Team CSC's Kasper Klostergård found himself having to abandon the Circuit Franco-Belge during the 188km stage three from Bray-Dunes to Poperinge.

"He doesn't quite know what's caused it, but it's been giving him a lot of pain during the last couple of days. He hasn't been involved in any crashes lately so it can't be that. If there's no improvement over the next few days Kasper will have to end his season a little earlier than originally planned," said sports director Scott Sunderland after the third stage according to the team's website, www.team-csc.com.
