Luis Angel Mate continues with knee problems

Cofidis' Luis Angel Mate will miss the Vuelta a Murcia, the Clasica de Almeria and the Volta ao Algarve, due to pain in his knee.

The rider suffered a hit on the knee more than a week ago, which left him out of the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, the race that was set to be his season kick-off. He has not been improving and is out of the next three races of his calendar, as is explained on the Spanish website Zikloland.

The Spaniard has been undergoing medical treatment and taking short training rides, but a recent MRI showed that the contusion is still there and doctors have recommended him to stop the bicycle rides for the moment to allow the knee to heal completely.
