Knee surgery for Rosseler

Another rider with knee problems is Sébastien Rosseler of Team Quick-Step, who will undergo knee surgery on Wednesday. Knee problems have caused him to miss most of the races so far this year. He is expected to need three weeks of recovery.

The team announced as early as January that the 26 year-old had pain in his right knee, which might prevent him from riding.

He rode the Driedaagse De Panne and said at the time on the team's website that he was pain-free, but the pain has evidently returned. (SW)
