Martijn Maaskant (Garmin-Cervelo) faces several weeks on the sidelines after crashing out of Paris-Nice earlier this month. The Dutchman fractured seven ribs, suffered a punctured lung, cuts and bruises and was left unconscious on stage 7 from Brignoles - Biot to Sophia Antipolis.

Garmin-Cervelo’s next race is tomorrow’s Dwars door Vlaanderen, in Belgium. The team will be led by Heinrich Haussler and Tyler Farrar.
