Tosatto injured and misses Milano-Sanremo
logotinkoff One of Tinkoff-Saxo’s hope for the classics, Matti Breschel is still suffering from the horrific crash in Oman and today, we’re sorry to announce another huge set-back in terms of being in contention for a win during the cobblestone classics. Our highly experienced and tirelessly supportive Matteo Tosatto is injured and misses Milano-Sanremo tomorrow:

Team doctor, Piet de Moer explains:

“Matteo has a lot of pain in his cervical spine. This pain goes all the way to his left arm. On an MRI-scan, they found pressure from the discs on the nerves, which is the reason for the pain he’s feeling. In other words, Matteo has suffered a herniated disc. He will see a specialist later today to decide the treatment. But I don’t think it’s realistic for him to do any races for at least a week,” says de Moer.

Matteo Tosatto has just finished Tirreno-Adriatico where he supported teammate and overall winner, Alberto Contador. Nikolay Trusov will replace Tosatto in tomorrow’s Milano-Sanremo.
