German Erik Zabel has been ruled out of Paris-Roubaix.
Zabel suffered arm and leg bruises after crashing during the Tour of Flanders in Belgium.
"He needs a few days to recover and to let his wounds heal," Milram team manager Gianluigi Stanga told the cycling news website.
Zabel took third place in the Paris-Roubaix in 2000. This year's race starts on April 15.
