O’Grady will miss Classics

Stuart O'Grady, who was injured in a fall during Milan-San Remo on Saturday, will be forced to skip the Spring Classics, his Saxo Bank team said Sunday. The 35-year-old Australian fractured his right collarbone and has broken a rib. He also suffered bruising between the lungs and the ribs. "It is extremely sad to see the Classics disappear because of a crash," O'Grady said. "The past several months of hard work had a purpose and focus – the classics and especially Paris-Roubaix. Now I've seen it all crumble, but hopefully I'll get the opportunity to come back later."

O'Grady's injuries will keep him off the bike for his favorite part of the year.

O’Grady won Paris-Roubaix in 2007, just a few months before a devastating crash in the Tour de France sidelined him for the rest of the year.
