Injury-hit Freire to miss Worlds
Oscar Freire
Freire opted not to ride in the higher profile Tour of Spain because of his injury
Spain's Oscar Freire will not compete in the World Championships in Salzburg later this month because of a recurrent neck injury.

The three-time world champion pulled out of the Tour of Poland on Wednesday.

His Rabobank team sports director Erik said: "We knew when he came into the Tour that Oscar was still suffering.

"But he wanted to see how it was going. The first two days were not so good so he decided to pull out, and his season is finished now."
