Cadel's not doing Spain.

Cadel Evans' knee problems are more serious than first reported and he will therefore have to sit out the Vuelta a España and probably the rest of the season, Team Silence-Lotto announced Wednesday evening.

Team doctor Daniel De Neve spoke with the Italian doctor handling Evans and reported that the lesions are more serious than first thought. Surgery is not being considered at this time, but healing and rehabilitation will take six to eight weeks "so Cadel's return to top-level competition this year might be impossible," the team said.

After the Olympic time trial in which the Australian finished fifth, it was disclosed that he had suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). He injured himself when he was celebrating his second-place finish in the Tour de France, an injury which at first was denied.

Coming up on
Cyclingnews will be covering the 29th Olympic Games liveSaturday, August 23.

POSTPONED: Women's Mountain bike cross country coverage begins around 10:00 local Beijing time/ 12:00 Australia (EST)/ 4:00 European time (CEST)/ 22:00 (USA East)
Men's Mountain bike cross country coverage begins around 15:00 local Beijing time/ 17:00 Australia (EST)/ 9:00 European time (CEST)/ 3:00 (USA East)

On mobile devices at http://live.cyclingnews.com/wap/


Evans is the second high-profiled rider to not start the Spanish Grand Tour, after Denis Menchov decided to skip the race. This will make it even more likely that the winner will come from the host nation of Spain. Three of the five riders who formed part of the successful Spanish Olympic road team. Alberto Contador (Astana), Alejandro Valverde (Caisse d'Epargne) and Carlos Sastre (Team CSC-Saxo Bank) have all good chances of taking out the overall win.

Olympic champion Samuel Sánchez (Euskaltel-Euskadi) will ride the Tour of Poland in order to prepare for the World Championships in Varese.(SW

From the outside, the medical opinion makes absolutely no sense.

If he is having 2 months off, for treating symptoms of the original injury, why not have the original injury fixed? It would only mean 4-6 months off the bike totally you would imagine.

It makes no sense. Could basically be the end if he is already having secondary problems with this.

Like I keep saying... never met a person able to avoid an ACL recon.

Cadel obviously didn't have enough to drink at the post-tour party, as when you are drunk, you can fall over things, off things and through things and don't hurt yourself one bit, and not spill a drop in the process. (at least thats what I've been told).

If he had 4-6 months off he would be out for next year as well...and he is getting on.
