Joaquím Rodríguez and Andy Schleck are among those suffering from crashes in the Amstel Gold Race. Rodriguez confirmed he will start in the Flèche Wallonne on Wednesday but could suffer on the closing Mur de Huy climb.

"Our osteopath treated me very well, that's why I decided to do this [two-hour ride] test," said team Katusha's captain. "The first 30 minutes were very painful, but afterwards it went better. The major problem remains the efforts on the climbs."
