Ina-Yoko Teutenberg will be out for the Spring Classics this year. The Specialized-Lululemon rider is still suffering from a severe concussion suffered several weeks ago.

“Team+me came to decision of me being out for spring season! Face is healed but concussion is not+doc sidelined me! Sad to miss the classics!” she tweeted.

The 38-year-old suffered the injury in a crash at the Drentse 8 van Dwingeloo on March 7.

“She needs time to recover from it. Right now we can't tell when she will come back,” team manager Ronny Lauke told “She won't be able to train for the next two weeks. Then we will see.”

Teutenberg is expected to miss all of the Belgian World Cups.
