Sky's Sergio Henao called an end to his season that began with biological passport issues and finished when he broke his kneecap in a training crash on Friday at the Tour de Suisse.

"It's over," Henao said. "It'd be worthless to hasten my recovery and to try to race again. My priority is to recover physically, 100 per cent, but this year, I can't race again."
