The 2009 U23 world champion has been suffering from pain in his knees since early in the season. According to his team, the Frenchman changed his cycling shoes in the beginning of 2011, which is understood as the reason for his problems.
In the hope to heal the affected knee tissue, Euskaltel-Euskadi announced on Wednesday that Sicard would rest a few days and come back to racing only in "approximately one month".
