The Spaniard suffered a nasty fall on Wednesday which left him requiring eight stitches in his elbow and with several other flesh wounds.

While no bones were broken, the 29-year-old has been forced to pull out of the final Monument of the spring season.

The 2009 Clasica San Sebastian winner tweeted to confirm his absence: "Out of Liege…I have too much pain in my elbow and shoulder. I'm sad, but it's impossible to ride. Good luck to the Rabobank team!"
