Wauters out of Giro

The Rabobank team has announced that Marc Wauters will not start the Giro d'Italia after crashing in the Profonde Van Made on Sunday. It was Wauters' fourth crash in two weeks and an examination at the hospital in Hasselt, Belgium showed that he was suffering from concussion and bruises to the ribs under his right shoulder, as well as needing stitches to a cut in his right knee.

The team has pulled Steven de Jongh from the UNIQA Classic to replace Wauters in its Giro line-up and has not replaced de Jongh at the Austrian race.
