LA TOUSSUIRE, France (AP) The RadioShack cycling team says Andy Schleck of Luxembourg is recovering from a spinal injury slower than expected and is likely to miss the London Olympics.
The 2010 Tour de France champion crashed last month during the Criterium du Dauphine and is still unable to ride his bike without pain.
RadioShack team doctor Andreas Goesele said in a statement Thursday that Schleck underwent an MRI scan that showed "the fracture is not fully healed yet."
The men's Olympic race will take place July 28. RadioShack manager Johan Bruyneel says "the only certainty seems to be his absence from the Olympics because they've come too early."
Schleck initially finished second at the 2010 Tour. He was awarded the title after Alberto Contador was disqualified for doping.
