Popovych and Devolder to miss Scheldeprijs
logotrekfrt Trek Factory Racing has withdrawn Stijn Devolder and Yaroslav Popovych from the lineup for Scheldeprijs tomorrow due to injuries sustained from crashes in Ronde van Vlaanderen this past Sunday.

Devolder, the victim of two big crashes in Flanders, sustained a hematoma in the synovial bursa of the elbow. Popovych strained his adductor muscles of the hip after he entangled his handlebars with a fan, an unfortunate incident that is quite common in the Classics with numerous fans lining the narrow, cobbled roads.

The team will start with six riders in Scheldeprijs, and allow both Devolder and Popovych more time to heal prior to Paris Roubaix this coming Sunday. Popovych is scheduled for a scan later today to be sure the hip joint was not affected and he remains questionable for Sunday’s Paris Roubaix, while the team hopes Devolder, with the added rest, will be ready to take the start in Compiègne.

The Trek Factory Racing lineup for Scheldeprijs will be Fabian Cancellara, Hayden Roulston, Jesse Sergent, Gregory Rast, Markel Irizar and Danny van Poppel.
