Estonian Jaan Kirsipuu, the leader of the French AG2R team, has been ruled out for several weeks after he was knocked off his bike by a car while training, his team said Saturday.

Kirsipuu, who won the Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne Belgian classic race two weeks ago, injured his kneecap in the incident, which occurred while he was riding downhill close to his home at close to 60kph.

“Jaan will be out for at least three weeks,” said team manager Vincent Lavenu, who added he expects to be without his ace card at least until the end of May.

The Estonian sprinter is highly unlikely to take part in a host of classic races in April, especially the Paris-Roubaix which was one of his main objectives this season.
